Tips on Sending an Email to Multiple People

If you want to send the same email to multiple people, put your address in the To: field, and put all the other addresses in Bcc: (blind carbon copy) so that they are hidden. Do NOT put them in To: or Cc:, where they are visible to everyone else.

Today I received a blank email with 'Test message' as the subject line, and (in 'To:') the names and addresses of about a hundred people whom I don't know. That is a serious breach of privacy - and the sender has also left all of us open to spam. To make matters worse, I am now receiving emails from other recipients, because they used 'Reply to All' instead of just 'Reply'.

Not happy!
