    Of course... basic email etiquette. Use BCC

    Use the BCC: (Blind Carbon Copy, or nowadays Blind Courtesy Copy) instead of
    TO: for the list of names.

    I suggest that you also send TO: your email address so that there is not a
    'blank' TO: address which can cause some mail filters to dump the mail.

    Suggestions on using a mailing list in Windows Live Mail (WLM):
    - In the Contacts select New Group/Category, give it a name (e.g. Bob's
    Mailing List BCC), and then use Select Members to add the desired
    contacts to the group
    - In the Contacts select New Contact, give it a name (e.g. Bob's
    Mailing List) and enter your own e-mail address
    - When you want to send to the list, in the TO field select the "Bob's
    Mailing List" entry and in the BCC field select the "Bob's Mailing List
    BCC" group/category. Recipients will see "Bob's Mailing List" in the TO
    field (which looks better than "Undisclosed Recipients" which sounds
    like spam, and may get filtered out by some ISP anti-spam filters), they
    will not see the name or address of any of the people in the list and
    you will get a copy of the message.
    (With WLM you have to check the option to View, All Headers in a Mail
    composition window in order to see the BCC field or click on Show Cc &
    Bcc after the Subject.)
    Note: Your mail service (e.g. ISP) sets the limit for the number of
    recipients per message which will limit your group/category size. If you
    exceed their limit, they will refuse to send the message. Check with
    them for their limit. Limits are typically in the 10 to 100 range, with
    50 being fairly common.

    If you want each person's name, and only their name, to appear in the TO
    field, you need to send a separate message to each person. That is the
    nature of mail on the Internet. When you send one piece of mail to
    multiple people, they all get identical TO and CC fields. The only way
    to get unique TO and/or CC fields is to send separate messages. It's
    tedious to do that in WLM. There are some bulk mailer programs designed
    for this. You might try the shareware sites. There are links to
    shareware sites in the URL in my signature. Also, Outlook2000+ can do
    this as part of an e-mail/merge.
