Do you ever get those emails from family or friends; the ones they send to you and 60 others in their address book?
I’m sure you have; I get five a day.
My problem is that everyone now has my address in their email system; maybe not as a contact but it’s still there. Gmail, Outlook and most other email programs save the addresses from every email just in case; viruses know this.
If one of the 60 computers of the folks who receive that email has a virus – a fair assumption – my email address ends up on a Spam list.
There’s a simple solution that will allow you to send those motivational slideshows safely; Blind Carbon Copy (BCC). Every email system allows you to send the message to yourself and include the other 60 folks in a “BCC” field. This will allow them to get the email without giving away everyone’s address.
A simple way to save me (and the other 59 folks) from even more spam.
