akapost is a simple and easy way to protect your email identity from being exposed on the Internet.
there is a webpage, www.emailhide.org, that encrypts your email address in a secure manner. All you nedd to do is type in your email address and is returned html code with a link with your encrypted email. I've tried and now i use it everytime. There's also a automatic gen for webmasters. Check it out.
If i need to send out a message to a lot of people, but i want them to only see their own name on the email, as if i personally sent it to just them and not 25 other people as well, how would i do this in Microsoft Outlook?
I have gmail and I've tried everything in the book to prevent my mail recipients to see other's addresses, but it won't work. I use the BCC feature but the addresses still show. I know this because I tried sending a message to multiple recipients, where I put one of my other mails in the TO box and the rest in the BCC box. That's when I found that the addresses were displayed.
Thank you very much for your help.
this article describes how to hide email ids of recipients from other recipients. i was wondering if there is a way to have the individual recipient's id alone in the 'to' space for every recipient, without other ids being visible to him/her.
To send emails to a lot of people, without the recipients knowing each other, you should list the recipients as bcc, or use a mailing list.
If the problem is that you don't want people knowing your real email address, then you can use some pseudo email address generator. There are some nice services out today, like hidemails.com.
You can do a mail merge with Outlook 2003 and 2007, under Tools, that sends the same message to a group of people and doesn't reveal the other recipients. You can even address each recipient by name in the body of the message. However, I have Outlook 2002 so I have to start the merge in Word, using a folder within my Outlook contacts as a souce of e-mail addresses. Instructions are at http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/mailmerge.htm.
IF i forward an e mail how do i send it with out the usual list of e mail addresses of former recipients showing, think I know what I mean....Terry
Its good to hide your e-mail address because someone can create an address on your behalf and make your life a living hell.
i visited a cite called christinas and they gave #s and letters to replace name and @ etc
