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
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.
Click the blue Address Book

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.
