How To Show Single Address for Dist List

By artcabot ·
I have a user that needs to send an e-mail to an entire distribution list, but she wants it to have only that one recipient in the To: field. We have Outlook 2000 and Outlook Express available. Is there a way to do this or do we need a third-party product? If so, which one?

Put the 50 email addresses in the BCC field. Put PREFERRED CUSTOMER or something like that in the TO field and make that name equal to your email address. In a message, click View-BCC field if it is not visible.

Or, you can use a mail merge with Word:

In this URLs I pasted, there is a space after the last forward slash. You'll need to delete the space if you paste it into your browser.

First part of answer should say "Put the distribution list in the bcc field..."

Sorry I didn't get to this before now, your answer somehow didn't trigger the e-mail notification. I'm ashamed I didn't think of this first.

Give the distribution list a name. When you create a distribution list if you call this something, give it an approprate title, then add the names to this list then you can just use the title to call up the list. Then when you send off the email it will send to all members of that group.

Understood. We were trying to only have one recipient's name showing to make it look like they were the only one on the distribution. Thanks anyway.
