    Hide individual email addresses within the Group (IE 6)

    Is there a way to do a bulk emailing of a say notice to a group, but hide the other email addresses within the group from the individuals receiving.
    For example a group is called Botox and has say 10 patient email addresses. You can type botox in the to field. But each patient that gets the botox email will see
    all the other patient email addresses

    Re: Hide individual email addresses within the Group (IE 6)

    I use the "bcc" address line. Haven't done it in a while, but I don't think I had to put anyone on the "to" line. I do remember putting myself on the "to" line, though, to send it to myself in addition to recipients (being in my "in box," it is more visible than in the "sent box").

    BCC is certainly the easy way to do it, I do not leave the "To" field empty, I enter my own name in this field, followed by the recipients in the BCC field, this will then only show the emal to be from you, and hide any other recipients. If you leave the "To" field empty, usually an entry will be inserted automatically after you send, indicating the email was a "multi recipient" email, meaning it is more obvious the email has been sent to several people.

    Re: Hide individual email addresses within the Group (IE 6)

    I tried this, but it still shows the individual email address in the email in the header of the received email: cc: PLASTICSURGEON@prodigy.net <PLASTICSURGEON@prodigy.net>; Fdn@prodigy.net <Fdn@prodigy.net> where botox group had these 2 email addresses. should have just shown botox.
    So does not quite accomplish what I want to accomplish. I want to group patients together, but most patients won't be happy having their email addresses seen by other patients.

    <hr> I tried this, but it still shows the individual email address in the email in the header of the received email: cc: <hr>
    Not quite clear on what you are saying Jerome? the To and CC fields should not show anything (except your own name if inserted in the To box) - are you certain you are using the BCC option (blind carbon copy) when inserting recipeint email addresses? If the recipients email addresses are visable in any way at all, then there is something wrong in the way you originally sent the message. I understand completely the need to protect addresses, and use BCC often. In IE 6, try a practice run as follows:
    1. Create New Message
    2. When you click on the 'To" icon the "Select Recipients" address book opens, insert your own name in the To line
    3. Leave the CC area empty
    4. Select recipients from the address book already opened making sure they only go into the BCC area box.
    5. When finished, insert a Subject for the Subject line, and if you wish a note in the message area, then send to yourself.
    The only address that should be showing when you receive it is your own name as the sender.

    Excellent News.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Well done Jerome, glad to be of help. Don't feel concerned about using the CC field by mistake, it is a very common error and unless someone takes the time to step out the exact instructions for you, many assume you must already know. You will find the Blind Carbon Copy a great option and very secure. I am happy you gave it another try. Good for you for persisting. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
