Outlook Express 5 distribution lists

I have created a new group (distribution list) with a number of members within it.

Is it possible to disallow recipients of an email send to this group, to see the other recipients on the list? At the moment, if I have 10 members within the group, each of the 10 mails sent has all the other members names & email addresses within the "To" field.

I would like to prevent this. Any ideas?

Thanks

Not sure if my previous attempt posted OK but here goes....

Put the distribution list into the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) field in the e-mail header and not the To field

Of course! However, when I do this in the To: field the following is displayed:

<Undisclosed-Recipient:;>

Is it possible to have a name i.e. Mailing list?

thanks for your help

You could create a contact whose name is the name of your dist list and whose address is yours. Put that in the To field and the dist list into the BCC field.
