    Another Distribution List question (XP)

    Whenever I create a distribution list and use it to send messages, the recipient see the list of names in the distribution list, rather than the name of the distribution list. Is there a way to show only the distribution list name, rather than have each name displayed??

    The usual trick is to create an e-mail address that is your address but change the display name to the name of the list. Then put the real distribution list in the BCC field.

    Thank you for the "usual trick" tip. I didn't think anything had changed in Outlook. I always thought distribution lists would be used more if all the recipients would only see the dist. list name, rather than all the email addresses.
