How to send an email to undisclosed recipients

This may seem pretty straightforward to other people but I figured if I needed to look it up maybe someone else needs the info as well.
  • Launch Outlook 2007, and click the button to create a new email message.

  • In the 'To' address field enter 'Undisclosed Recipients' followed by your e-mail address in braces.

    • For example: 'Undisclosed Recipients'

    • Side note: If you leave the TO: field blank, the email may bounce as some service providers may filter mark the mail as spam.

  • In the BCC field, enter the e-mail addresses of those to whom you are sending the message.

  • Write your message and send your e-mail.
Thank you to Carol's Corner Office at infopackets for the great tips!
