All the various Eudoras look different, but the rules are the same.

When we send out an EMail to multiple EMail addresses without hiding them, we're contributing to spam.  How?  Those EMail addresses are worth the price of gold to spammers.  Especially if your EMail is then "forwarded" by one or two, three, four of those well-meaning people to THEIR list of family/friends.  Now not only is your list of EMail addresses showing, but so is the list of those who also used the TO: button to forward your mail on.  This tutorial will show you how to 'hide' the recipient EMail addresses by using the :Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) feature in Eudora.


Open Eudora. 


Click the blue Address Book



Hold your Ctrl key and left click on each name from your address book that you're sending the EMail to.



Click the Bcc: button (Bcc means Blind Carbon Copy).



Notice the names and EMail addresses you selected are listed beside the letters Bcc:   Now type your subject and your EMail message. Click Send safe in the knowledge no one will see your private list of EMail addresses.



This is what your friends and family see when your EMail arrives.  (Recipient list suppressed). 



BONUS TUTORIAL (Using the Reply versus the Reply All button)


When someone sends you an EMail with cc's (carbon copies) or bcc's (blind carbon copies) to a hundred other people, DON'T make the mistake of replying to the person who sent you the EMail by clicking the Reply All button.  Not only will the 'sender' get your EMail, but so will every single other person that received the original EMail.  Instead, be sure to click the Reply button so that ONLY the sender of the EMail gets your reply.
