I am using Thunderbird hooked up with a Gmail account and want to know how to send emails to a group of people but not have them all see each other's email addresses.

I want to send people some emails and I usually have to send them out one at a time since I don't want other people to see their emails.

Use the BCC (blind carbon copy) line to insert the email addresses. The recipients will not be able to see who the other recipients are.

Cool. So I can just use BCC and not have a To line then? – chobo2 Jan 13 '10 at 23:38
Yes, that's right. – Iain Jan 14 '10 at 0:05
Beware though, I think that means TB will not retain any record of who you sent bcc's to. – pnuts Mar 13 '13 at 9:37
