Hi.

I know how to create a distribution list. I want to know how I can keep each individual private from each other on that distribution list.

It wouldn't look to professional to have a bunch of individuals see they are part of a marketing mailing.

Any suggestions??

Thanks.

If you are sending a mass mailing you could always send it to yourself then blind cc the distribution list. This way all the recipients see is your email address.

Just to add to MzLizz's suggestion, here's what I do...

I add a contact with MY address in it, and the words "Newsletter Recipients" as the friendly name used by Outlook.

I put that in the TO box, and the distlist in the BCC. Outlook and OE users will see To: Newsletter Recipients

Right. You gotta change your name one temporarily, then change it back. Change your name from Lenz Flair to Newsletter Recipient

Then change it back.

Feel free to send test to [email protected]

This is what I did.
Under a subfolder within public contacts, I created a contact named Newsletter Recipients.
with my work email address.

I ran the test: To: newsletter recipient Bcc: distribution list
and when I got the test under to: it said my name. Huh.

Did you delete yourself (with your name) as a contact first?

I can do it in IMO...

I don't think I can do that. Our IT guy in California will probably kill me.

If I'm understand you correctly..

I created a fictitious contact named newsletter Recipient and but my work email, but it recognized it and send it To: my name.

I don't think I can make it not do that.

I tried changing my name under the email section of the contact to Newsletter Recipient, but it was like ...uh thats not an email address you moron. so..... still trying...

See!! what I mean??

Well Thanks for your help dreamboat. I'm going to keep trying, I guess what I could do ultimately is set it BCC only.

You know what I mean?? Thanks for your help.

IDEA!

Okay, you're the newsletter distributor, yeah? So, why would you want any newsletter stuff to go to YOU? I mean...what if they get somebody else to do the newsletter. Do they want to have to redirect everything? NO. So go to your mail admin and beg for another account called [email protected] (you know--the name of the newsletter). Ask them to either forward all that email to you, or allow you access to that account (do this via Tools-Services--it's one of those tabs there that lets you open another mailbox when you open yours).
