    I would like to keep the recipients of my emails known only to myself. I don't want to have someone's name or address displayed in th "to" section when they come from me. I bet it can be done but I'm having trouble figuring it out.
    Can I get any help???

    Have you tried putting all your recipients in the "bcc" block instead of the "to" block? The "bcc" is for blind carbon copy.

    I use that in business all the time. I will send out an offer to many potential customers using bcc. Each customer will see it addressed only to themselves and will not see the other addressees.

    The bcc works well but.....I think it will advertise :eek:ther undisclosed recipients: Is this true and what is the possibility that a recipient's system won't accept your mail because of this because of a preset lockout for unsolicited mails.

    I think that depends on your mail client, I know Outlook Express writes that.

    No, it won't. There is no record of Cc: or Bcc: lines in the headers upon receipt.

    Just make sure you put something in the To: field. Even if its your own name, otherwise you will get the undisclosed recipients message.
