Hide names and addresses in a personal distribution list

To keep the names and e-mail addresses of people included on a personal distribution list private, or hidden, use the Bcc (Bcc: An abbreviation for blind carbon copy. If you add a recipient's name to this box in a message, a copy of the message is sent to that recipient, and the recipient's name is not visible to other recipients of the message.) field.

 Note   It's not possible to display the distribution list name in the To box, without allowing it to be expanded to show the entire list of names and e-mail addresses. This procedure suggests using the sender's name in the To box.

  1. In an open message, add your e-mail address in the To box.
  2. In the Bcc box, add the distribution list.
  3. Type your message and click Send.

  • In an open message, on the Message Options tab, in the Fields group, click Show Bcc.
