Ask the Experts: E-Mailing multiple recipients

Question: How do you send out a mass e-mail without showing all of the recipients' e-mail addresses? We've been copying all of the e-mail addresses into the "To:" section of the e-mail program, but when it goes out this way the e-mail shows all of the addresses, cluttering the page and raising our members' privacy concerns.

Answer: Simply right-click on the list of e-mail addresses, left-click on "Select All" to highlight them, right-click and select "Copy," then paste them into the "BC:" or "Blind Copy" field of your new message.  Type your own e-mail address into the "To:" field, and send the e-mail.  When your members receive the email, they will only see their own and your e-mail addresses.
