    Distribition List (Outlook 2003)

    I have created a distribution list and have had no problems with that. I then create a email to send to this distribution list. In the TO: field I add the distribution list that I created, when I send this email the recipients donn't see the distribution list name but they see all the email addresses in that distribution list. I want the recipients to only see the name of the distribition list and not the email address. I know that I use to be able to do this in the earlier versions of outlook. Does anyone know if this could still be done in Outlook 2003. Appreciate any comments. Thanks !!

    I think Outlook always expands a distribution list when it sends the e-mail. The distribution list is a personal setting, it doesn't exist on the recipient's PC.
    If you are on Exchange, the powers that be can define groups. If you send to a group, the recipients will see the group name.

    The "old way" to maintain anonymity with a distribution list is to put it in the BCC space and simply have your own address (perhaps with the distribution list as the display name) in the "to" space.
