Question: I want to send an email to several people but I have security concerns and do not want to share everyone’s email address. Can I do this?
Answer: Yes. Your email security concerns are quite valid and there is a simple solution to this. Most email programs allow you to include recipients as either a carbon copy, “cc:” or as a blind carbon copy or “bcc:”
The difference between the two is that recipients see all addresses that are listed as the “cc:” recipients but they do NOT see who is included on the “bcc:” list. So rather than including everyone in the “To” field or in the “cc:” field you can just put your own email address in the “To” field and then include all the recipients as blind carbon copy or “bcc:” entries.
Everyone will then get the email but will not be able to see who else received the message. And if they do a “Reply All” the reply will only go to you. Much better email and computer security all the way around.
