I would like send an email to many users. I would only like each recipient to see only their own email address in the To: form of the email. Not the list of 50 recipients that the email was actually sent to.

Is this possible?

Enter the list in the BCC field if you are using a "fat" clieet like Outlook.

Exactly. See also; (differences between To, CC, and BCC explained). – RJFalconer Dec 31 '09 at 15:09
If I use BCC: what is displayed in the To: form? Nothing? – CT. Dec 31 '09 at 15:19
The receipient name will be displayed if you use BCC – Dave M Dec 31 '09 at 15:23
A common practice also is to put your own email address in the to field, then BCC all the intended recipients. – BBlake Dec 31 '09 at 15:25
BBlake Good tip! – Dave M Dec 31 '09 at 15:45
