at least so far as any e-mail is safe. If someone should, somehow, intercept one of your mails, they would get that recipient's address -- but only that one. On the other hand, should a mail having a list of recipients, or regular ccs, then the entire list is available. Bcc is, therefore, generally recommended for best protection of your recipients from spam and other unwanted attention.
One wonders how rumors, such as the oine you heard, get started.
I send e-newsletters out to a small group of subscribers. My research has taught me that it is best to send the subscribers the e-news by putting the group in the BCC category to decrease sending and getting Spam and viruses. However, someone recently told me that BCC addresses are targets for Spam and viruses. (Is this true?)
If it isn't safe to send via BCC, which way is safe?
I use MS Outlook 2003 to send the e-news. I use Avast antivirus and Windows Firewall.
Any help will be appreciated.
