Hide group member's email addresses

Does anyone know how to hide group member's e-mail addresses &/or names when sending a group contact email?  I just want the Group Name to appear in the "to" section of the email.  Thx

Re: Hide group member's email addresses

Thank you but I want the name of the group to show as a recipient.  For example, I want the recipient to show as Group A but I don't want all of the people in Group A to have their names or emails showing.

The short answer is 'you can't do that'

 

The long answer is:

A group is just a 'container' into which you place email addresses. As the servers which deliver the email need to use the individual email addresses to route mail, the contents of the group are separated into the constituent email addrsses, which are really what is in the To: field. Once the email reached it's destination, the receiving email system or client has no knowledge of the original group 'container', so all it can do is place all the email addresses in the original message in the appropriate (To:, CC:. BCCSmiley Happy fields for display to the recipient...

Normally you would see this capability in enterprise level systems that use a global address book, so that all of the mail clients within a companies mail system have access to the group 'containers'. Internet email, which does not use a common address book, lacks that level of integration.
