Use BCC field when addressing mass
PLEASE READ and
become a better E-mail user. This information is intended not only to make you
a neater "E-mailer" but one that is more considerate and
more thoughtful. Your friends will be thankful!.
Would you write your
friends' phone numbers on the walls of public places? I didn't think so. Then
why would you share their private E-mail addresses with a group of strangers
when you know that many of whom will CARELESSLY forward the same addresses to
even more strangers? DON'T DO IT! Instead, use your E-mail
program'S BCC feature.
It provides a way of addressing messages to more than one person so that everyone's
address is not displayed for all to see. ALL email programs, including the web-based
email services, allow you to address messages using BCC. In other words you
can "BCC" one or more recipients when sending a message. Some require
that you provide at least one address in the TO: field before sending. If this
is the case with your email client (program, application), place YOUR
OWN email address in the TO: field. Keep your recipients' addresses
in the BCC field.
- Using BCC protects
your recipients' private email addresses from being spread to strangers (from
being released into the public domain.)
- Using BCC helps
- When using BCC,
messages are easier on your readers because the messages contain less text
to sift through. The cleaner the message, the easier it is to read.
- Because the
messages contain less text, they're smaller and require less bandwidth. They
will download faster.
- Using BCC shows
your consideration of others by not publishing hundreds of your contacts to
strangers (and potentially, SPAMMERS or maybe even stalkers.)
- In most email
clients, the BCC field is very apparent and obvious. While in a new message
in AOL's web mail, click BCC. In Gmail and Yahoo Mail!, click
add BCC. In Hotmail, click Show Cc & Bcc.
- In Outlook and
Outlook express, it's not so obvious but turning it on is a one-time event.
activate the BCC field in Outlook Express,
create a new message and choose View, All Headers.
activate the BCC field in MS-Outlook,
create a new message and choose View, BCC.
- Lotus Notes
- the BCC field is right there. Nothing to "turn on", no hoops
to jump through, just use it!
