Hide names and addresses in a personal distribution list

To keep the names and e-mail addresses of people included on a personal distribution list private, or hidden, use the Bcc field.

Note: It's not possible to display the distribution list name in the To box, without allowing it to be expanded to show the entire list of names and e-mail addresses. This procedure suggests using the sender's name in the To box.

  1. In an open message, add your e-mail address in the To box.

  2. In the Bcc box, add the distribution list.

  3. Type your message and click Send.

I dont see the Bcc box.

  • In an open message, on the Message Options tab, in the Fields group, click Show Bcc.
