Is that normal? Is there any way of making sure multiple Bcc recipients see absolutely nothing apart from the originator of the email? But even as things stand right now I can work like this. Thanks for staying with me up to this point. Regards, Gary
Yes. I assumed that you were the originator of the email, so if the recipients see a message with a heading like:
Subject: something
Date: December 1, 2013 11:11:34 AM PST

they won't gather any new information from the To: address that they wouldn't get anyway.
