Just put your email address in the "To:" field, it should work.

Maybe if told us what you are trying to achieve we maybe able to help with a work around instead.
As well as I am just plane curious why the hell you want to sent yourself an email.
Another way is set up two mail accounts in your name but with different email addresses.

One reason I do it, when forwarding, is I want to keep a copy in the inbox without all the original recipients, just my name.

Aussie humor!!!

In reply to: Re: Haven't you got any friends!

or is it just humor? - anyway may not be something i would say to the Queen of England, but that's about it. Sorry mate we call it as we see it - no pomp and ceremony in this part of the world. No offense ever intended and usually no offense ever taken.
Most of our humor is dry with tongue in cheek.
Hope you understand?
Regards,
Peter

When I am sending emails to more than one person, and don't want everyone to see each others address, when using the BBC BOX, I must have a name in the TO BOX. Thats why I use my name.

Yes- that's the way to do it. Can you give more details on what happened when you put your address at the 'To' - the mail was not sent at all; or the mail was sent to those at 'CC' but not to you ? Any error messages ?

When I put my address into the "TO:" box and the other addresses into "BCC:" box then send it,all the other people receive the email but not me. And there is "No Error Messages" It had work in the pass but not any more.

Thanks Again

Re: To remove a block email address

In reply to: Re: Why? - Haven't you got any friends!

I'm using SBC Yahoo DSL.
Enter your email program
Click on Mail Options
Click on Block Addresses
In the Remove Block Area
Scroll down to check if your
email address is listed
If so high it and click on Remove Block.
Thats It.

This happened to yahoo (and many other)

In reply to: Re: Why? - Haven't you got any friends!

users because .. the Delete and Spam Button is located closed together...

so, many people accidentally click 'Spam" instead of delete...

by doing so, the reported address will be put in the 'Block Address List' ...

If the setting didn't put the email address in the 'block address list' (from the options) .. then it will go to the 'BULK".

Enjoy your week end guys..

Just write ur mail address as receiver address. It means both sender and reciever address will be the same.
