    unknown recepient (Outlook 2000)

    I see mail delivered to me where the sender is "unknown recepient". How is this done? Can I do this in Outlook? Thanks

    There are starting to be some State laws against sending mail with missing or fraudulent information in the Sender name, to discourage spammers, so... maybe you don't want to go there.

    sender is unknown recepient or the to field is?

    it's done in the to field by some mail program when you send all addresses as BCCs. you can fake it in outlook - use the bcc field for all addresses and create a contact for unknown recepient, using your address on the contact - most people just use their own contact or name the new contact "my friends" etc.

    The "From" box says unknown recepient. I am curious as to how this is done.

    does it have an email address there? (double click on it on an open message) you can set your display name to anything you want (depending on your isp, you can do the same for the address) - and spammers use software that can send without from names or use invalid addresses.
