    I use yahoo for e-mail and have a simple question. Normally when I receive an e-mail that has been sent to many people on the sender's list, I see all of the recipients' e-mail addresses in the "to" field. However, I recently received an e-mail that sounded like it would should have been sent to several people at once (it said, "Hey everyone, etc.") but only my name was in the "to" field. Does that mean that this message was sent only to me (at that particular sending)?

    Thanks,

    mgs

    It could have been sent to you using BCC (blind carbon copy) which hides the other recipients.
