Free Tips & Easy "How to" Instructions
When you come across something online that you just have to share with your loved ones, but you don't want to send 30+ separate e-mails, then you can do what most people do, and send only one e-mail, addressed to various recipients..
A lot of people still make the fatal mistake of simply adding a whole bunch of e-mail addresses to the recipient field. This is very very wrong for several reasons.
These "others" very often don't know some of the other "others" on the recipients list, and hence might use their e-mail address for all kinds of purposes, like spam...
E-mail addresses are private. Only the owner of an e-mail address has the right to choose with whom they share their address! Who are you to hand it out on a silver platter? So, what to do?
All it takes is the correct usage of a little field called "BCC".
Next to the "To" field, where you enter the e-mail recipient, there are 2 more recipient fields you can use. One is called "CC" and the other "BCC".
CC stands for Carbon Copy.
BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy.
What you need to use, when sending a mass e-mail, is the BCC feature. It is very simple.
The location of the BCC field may vary, depending on the e-mail client you are using, but it is there!
When using Google's webmail Gmail, for instance, the two carbon copy options are located right underneath the regular recipient field:
By clicking the Add Cc and/or Add Bcc links, additional recipient fields will appear:
No e-mail client will allow you to send an e-mail when the main recipient field (labeled "To:") is left empty, however if you enter your own e-mail address, the same as the one you are sending the e-mail from, then you have just composed the perfect mass e-mail!
Never misuse the trust you were given by receiving an e-mail address!
