Emailing Lots of People At Once
When TIP began I listed its few subscribers on a spreadsheet, highlighted them, and copied the list to the 'Bcc:' slot atop each email issue I sent.
'Bcc:' is "send Blind Carbon Copy to:", while 'Cc:' is "send Carbon Copy to:"
'Bcc:' hides the e-addresses of the other recipients, while 'Cc:' displays them.
NEVER use 'Cc:' because every one on your mailing list sees who else is on it.
Nothing is needed in the 'To:' slot if 'Cc:', or 'Bcc:' has one or more addresses in it. So, check it and 'Send'.
It's fast, but the downsides to this method are:
1. You have no email record of who it went to, and
2. You can't personalize (e.g. Dear Harry) each message.
The next TIP will tell how to overcome these shortcomings.
