    Hidden 'To' Field (2007)

    I was trying to set up a distribution list that I could BCC to, but have nobody in the "To" field.

    I'm doing something all wrong, because I set up the group as "Undisclosed", but left it blank.

    If I do that, or even if I leave the "To" field completely empty, Outlook puts the Sender address in the To field.

    First, why isn't the To filed remaining blank, or just showing the "Undisclosed" label?

    And secondly, is there a way to have the people I want to bcc to show up in the To field instead of the Sender address?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    You can create a contact (not a distribution list) named Undisclosed Recipients, with your own e-mail address. Enter this in the To: box.
    Give the distribution list another name and enter its name in the BCC: box.

    > is there a way to have the people I want to bcc to show up in the To field
    That would defeat the purpose of BCC, wouldn't it?

    Hans, yea, the first worked, and yea, the second would defeat it, wouldn't it? Now I know how/why they sell those "customize your e-mail" add-ons!

    You the bomb!

    Thanks,
