    Group mailings (MSO2K)

    I am probably just slow, but I cannot grok how you send a group email -- unless of course you just list all the addresses in the TO field and let it fly.

    But what do you do if you want to either:

    1) Personalize each address (just the 'TO' info, for the text is the same.... or

    2) Totally hide all recipients.

    If I use a group, it expands so that all memebers are viewable, which ain't great.

    Isn't there a better, and hopefully, not too involved, method?

    I am using the Outlook as the message client, as opposed to Word...

    TIA

    Re: Group mailings (MSO2K)

    You can hide the list of recipients by using the BCC field instead of the To field (in the mail item, select View menu | BCC). But you'll have to put something in the To field or the item won't go out. This is a technique that most junk mail filters check, so it may cause problems.

    You can't use OL to put individual recipients in the To field when you use a list or multi-selected contacts. You have to write code or use a 3rd party product. www.slipstick.com lists quite a few products that do this.
