Somebody please tell how to hide the names of individuals when sending
out a group email.  Ie, when sending out an email to more than one
person, how do I ensure that the recipients names/email addresses
won't appear as a list in the TO: or CC: categories.

I am using Outlook Express so please tell me how to set it up using that program.

When you are composing a new message, click on the To or CC button to
expand the "Select Recipients" window.  This will bring up the window
that allows you to select recipients for the To, CC, and BCC (blind
carbon copy) fields.  Any e-mail address listed in the BCC field will
not be listed within the body of the message.

To show the BCC field whenever you compose a message, expand the View
menu of your new message and make sure that "All Headers" is selected.
 This will bring up the BCC entry box without requiring you to enter
the "Select Recipients" window.

For a visual representation of this process, please see the following website:

Use the bcc facility.

If it's not there, call it up.

You call it up from View and tick 'All Headers'.

You may try to use MailSend Plus 2004 instead Outlook Express
