I'd like to set up a distribution list such that
a recipient of the email would not know the identity
of their fellow recipients.
How is this done? Is there any software package that can do this? if so what?

If you're not going to handle thousends of people, just setup an alias pointing to your recipients, then send mail to it.

I will be sending to at least 500 people;
would bcc take care of this? The recipients are
not local to our LAN and internet email addresses
are required...

Hi,

   The mostly used software to handle that kind of load and more
is majordomo. You could obtain it at http://www.greatcircle.com/majordomo/, manuals, FAQ, source are
all there. 90% of Internet use this software for mailing list, and some could handle over 350.000 users a day like the joke a day mailing list.

Regards,
