    I'm using HOtmail in Outlook Express. Is there a way to forward an email to several people without each persons email addy showing up? Don't know if that's clear - but what I'm trying to do is pass a msg along to a group of people without each person seeing who else got the msg.

    Hi,

    Copy the e-mail into a new e-mail.

    Address it to yourself at another e-mail address or possibly your Hotmail address and then put all the e-mail addresses of all the other people you want to send it to the BCC field.

    Now send the e-mail.

    None of the people you send it to ( in the BCC field) will see the other peoples e-mail addresses.

    You could also look at groups in Outlook Express.

    One problem you may have is that your ISP may see an e-mail you are sending to numerous people as attempts to send spam e-mails and block it / them.

    When you click on foward, add your email address only on the send to line. Write an email, then just use the BCC: option "Blind Carbon Copy" to send to others on your email list. That way who ever you send an email to will not see your "List".

    On the newer OE versions, you can even skip putting your own addy in the To: section. I do almost all my emails to Bcc: only. ;)
