At times we may have to send out emails to a whole group of people in one go. In case the group of people are known to each other or say part of the same company or project, you can include all the emails in the “cc” field. However when you are sending out an email to entities that do not know each other, just placing everyone in “cc” may not be the ideal choice. Take the case of sending out a discount offer to your customers. Now you would never want your entire customer list to be disclosed to everyone and hence would not like place all of them together in “cc”. Let’s look how you can overcome the challenge.
Send an Email to Undisclosed Recipients
When you do not intend to disclose email IDs of everyone that you are including in your mass email, you can start by creating a contact called “Undisclosed Recipients” or “My Contacts” in Outlook. To do so, first visit the Contacts pane in Outlook and click on New Contact. When the screen opens up, enter the name of your choice, say My Contacts and then enter email ID associated with it. Ideally the email ID you associate with any of this contact names should be yours. In the event that you receive a message from Outlook mentioning that the email ID is already present in the folder, choose the option which mentions, “Add this as new contact anyway”. Once saved the name would appear in your contact list. It is important to note that when you send an email to undisclosed recipients, it may cause a trust issue with some users. So using a name like my contacts or friends or colleagues may be a good idea.
Next you can create a fresh email, including the undisclosed recipients email ID in the “to” field and include all other email IDs, you wish the email to be sent to, in the “bcc” field. When you now send out the email, no one would have the idea about other with whom the email has been shared.
