How to send to a group without displaying all emails addresses vbattagl 4/23/09 6:50 AM
I want to send an email to a large group and am not able to BCC b/c gmail thinks it's SPAM if i BCC.  But i don't want all the recipients to see each others email address.  Is there a setting to hide these addresses and only show the group name?

Put your own address in the To field, or if that does not work either, put another of your email addresses there.

This will not work. Must be another way.

Yes I need to do this too. I am sending out a questionnaire from a research project. I have created a google groups to do this, but even including all the emails in the CC section means that all the addresses are still visible to everybody. Is there a setting to hide them?

If you put the email addressses in the BCC (BLIND carbon copies) they should be invisible to everyone. Try a test.

You can cut the e-mail list from 'To' and paste into 'BCC', but it should be simpler. 

On Contacts screen, perhaps 2 actions 'Email To' and 'Email BCC'. This would be my preference as it is then always a reminder.  Its currently all too easy to send out a group mailing and then suddenly realize you have sent dozens of 'confidential' e-mail addresses to all recipients.

Second preference would be on e-mail screen to allow switching the address list type (like in Thunderbird) between 'To', 'CC', and 'BCC'.

For as forward as Google is this is an area that isn't working.  I need to be able to send group emails, easily, but this is too complicated and I don't like Outlook.  I need to protect my clients and "group" is "group" not making my life easier as much as protecting my clients.

Looks as though until this is worked out by the Google wizards I will remain tied to dealing with two systems.

If you create a gmail with the intention of sending it blind to lots of receipients, the process should be quite simple. Send the emial to yourself in the 'To' box and paste all the recipients names in the 'bcc' box. However, unfortunately when you have completed your task and sent your 150 emails in groups of 10 so as not to overload the system, you will be in for a big surprise. As you received no error messages you would assume they were delivered successffully. Not the case!!  Having carried out several tests it appears that 'bcc' only likes addresses that are gmail accounts. If your recipient has any account other than gmail, in 'bcc' it will not be delivered and you will not be notified of thet fact. I am happy for someone to prove me wrong or direct me as to what needs to be corrected in order for the 'bcc' to operate correctly.

PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO CUT THE EMAIL ADDRESSES OUT OF THE EMAILS I RECEIVE, SO I CAN SEND THEM ON TO MY FRIENDS WITHOUT DISPLAYING ALL THE FORWARDING EMAIL ADDRESSES. THANKS, MB

Simple!!  Just click on forward...and start deleting the addresses appearing above the message you want to forward..The recepient of your mail would assume that you are the first person who created the mail!

I agree with original thread. For years, using other servers etc. I have posted group mails "To" myself, and "BCC'd" to the group -and none of the members knew who else was in the list. With my new Gmail account, the whole BCC'd list of group members is listed for each to see, and some are getting offended with the lack of privacy. How can I avoid this?

OK. We all know about using the BCC rule and to avoid activating the spam filter, include your own address in the TO: field. ..HOWEVER, this does not address the issue that the name of the Group such as Team A will not show anywhere in the TO: field as a result, recipients won't know the context of the message right away. This is important for recipients.

Google should allow in Gmail>Contacts> Group has a feature to hide or show the Group name in the To: field, and automatically populate the addresses of members in the BCC field.

Or does Google do that already and I don't know?

t;his email program is pathetic.  nothing seems to work.  answers that come back are not true especially those from google staff.  What if your fearless leaders made a commitment to the priogram and spent some of their billions making the system work.  May be a good search engine but a lousy lousy e mail system.  Get a grip boys!!

kathleen.arvold,

Thanks for asking a specific question to which we, other Gmail users who do this in their free time, can help you find an answer.

Gmail programmers:  The program needs to be improved by allowing users to choose (under General Settings) how to display names with the ability to select "DO NOT SHOW EMAIL ADDRESSES".  We are able to choose how to display the sender's name and one would think this is a simple task.
