How can you create a Outlook distribution list and keep the members of the list from knowing who else is in the list when sending e-mail?

Hiding e-mail distribution list

You can list a "base" e-mail address (your own e-mail for example, or a "mailing list name" address you create). Then add the real mailing list to BCC users (blind carbon copy). That way all they'll see is the initial e-mail you enter...

Hope this helps!

Answer 1 is correct for the BCC or blind carbon copy field when sending. Once you create your group or list in outlook, just press the To button and insert your list in the BCC field. No one on the list will see who else it was sent to unless there's someone in the To or CC fields.

To create a distribution list in outlook, when you're in you contacts folder, go to file, new, distribution list. If you don't have a contacts folder, you need to add the Outlook Address book to your mail services or ask your system administrator. Sometime they want you to use a personal address book on your local PC (ineffecient since it doesn't get backed up like the exchange or mail server). Once you choose to create the list, name it. Put a number orpound sign at the beginning to keep the list at the alphabetical head of your contacts. Then just add members to the list from your own contacts or global address list. Don't type in addresses here--add them from individual addresses in your contacts because if you delete the distribution list by mistake, you lose all the addresses (my boss did this last week!!).

Hope this helps.
