Have you ever seen an email that said it was sent to “Undisclosed Recipients” because it didn’t reveal who the message was sent to? You can do this in Outlook and it’s a fairly simple trick that can make your mass emails seem either mysterious or more professional.
If you don’t want to share each email address with all the recipients, build an “Undisclosed Recipients” contact so that each recipient sees that address on the email. This shows every recipient that the email was not sent solely to them and effectively hides all the other addresses from each contact. The article will guide you how to send an email to undisclosed recipients in Outlook.
