How do I email multiple people without them knowing who else is getting the email?

You see, the problem is, I send out a friends newsletter to like 100+ people every week or so, but the poeople don't want their email to appear to everone getting the newsletter. I know it is possible to make it so whoever gets the email only see's THIER email address in the "To:" box, but I don't know how to do it.

a little help please

In the BCC: field, put in the addresses, seperated by commas. If you are using a crappy webmail service, consider switching to a good POP3 provider, so you can use Outlook, Eudora, etc.

ahhhhhhh! thanks RM and Sawg. I get it now.

I already know how to seperate the emails using comas or semi-colons (which is how i prefer) but I didnt know I needed to only put MY email in the To: form and the rest in the Bcc form. That was where I messed up before.

And I already use outlook, RM.

I'm ok with emailing, POP3, and SMTP shit, but I just never happened to need Bcc untill now. But I had to learn sometime.

Thanks again for the help, guys.

Peace

You don't have to put your email in the to: field. You could put one of those emails in that field. BCC = blind carbon copy. That's what you want. You want them to recieve a mail without realizing that they were sent a copy.

You could leave the to: field blank, too. Unless, of course, your mail provider considers that spam and blocks it.

Carbon copy. Normal mass mailing.

In the old days when everybody sent mail from Unix, I and my correspondences used to invent mail headers just for the heck of it:
code:
/home/griffin # mail emineminem@aol.com moby@dick.com winamp@llama.com
From: Your Supreme Ruler <griffinn@winamp.com>
To: Nobody Important <bleah@lame.com>
X-These-Are-Lamerzzzzz: emineminem@aol.com, moby@dick.com
X-This-Is-Way-Cool: winamp@llama.com

Wazzzzup!!!
.
/home/griffin #

Nobody who writes Windows mail clients seems to have thought of giving this degree of control over mail headers back to the user.
