Tech Tip #78: Use BCC to Hide Email Addresses

tech tipsAs a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each Tuesday, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!

Q:I want to send an email to a list of people, but don’t want to expose their email addresses. How do I do that?

A: Put all email address under the BCC field. In the ‘to’ field, put no-reply@yourdomain.com. It doesn’t matter what you put. It’ll bounce back to you as undeliverable, but all of your bcc emails will go out as planned.

Questions you want answered? Email me at askatechteacher@structuredlearning.net and I’ll answer it within the next thirty days.
