Removing Forwarded Names

Dear Computer Lady,

My friend has Yahoo mail & can use a feature when sending e-mails to erase all of the names so as not to distribute them all over the world!

I have been searching for the same feature in Outlook Express, with no success! Does Outlook Express have a similar feature?

Thank you so much for all of your fantastic help!



Dear Jo,

There are two things you could be asking about in this question, and since I am not sure which it is, I will answer them both.

If you are looking for a way to send your e-mail message to more than one person without each person being able to see all the other recipients of your message, then you need to use the Blind Carbon Copy feature in Outlook Express.

To use this feature, open Outlook Express and click on “Create Mail” In the new mail message that opens, click on “View” in the menu bar, then click on “All Headers” This will add the BCC function to your message. Now, you simply put the addresses of your recipients in the “BCC” section instead of the “To” section. When you send the message, each recipient will only see their own name, and not the names of the other recipients.

If you are looking for a way to forward e-mail messages that have long lists of names that it has already been forwarded to, there is a way to do that as well. You are not able to edit a message that has come into your inbox, but you can edit an outgoing message. This means that you have to open an outgoing message and edit that copy.

In Outlook Express, select the message you want to forward, and then click on the “Forward” button in the toolbar.

In the new, forwarding message that opens, highlight the text that you want to delete, and then press the delete button on your keyboard.

When you have cleaned up the message to your satisfaction, fill in your recipients and click “Send”.
