How to suppress email addresses appearing in a recipient's To: field

Hi Guys,

I have a couple of  distriibution lists which are sitting in a public folder
(Environment: Exchange 2003 & Outlook 2003). Is there a way I can stop the
distribution lists getting expanded with its e-mail addresses when  an
e-mail (from Outlook 2003 of course)is sent out. Just want to suppress
recipients seeing the entire list of e-mail addresses in the distribution
list appearing in the To: field - instead  just want the name of the
distribution list to appear there.

putting the DL in BCC: is no good as a recipent would not know that the
particular mail has been sent to a group of people.

Thanks for your help.

You can't hide the recipients directly.
What I usually do is fudge it.
I create a contact in my own Outlook with the name of the list. The email address is my own.
Then put the real distribution list in the BCC line.

another option is called MAIL MERGE....when sending to a distribution list
through mail merge option only individual recipients name is inserted in the TO:
field...no sign of distribution list...so no option to expand...

Hi Raghu,

I have n't tried what you suggested yet. But my guess is that it is not going to help any DLs sitting in a Public Folder in Exchange.

Thanks and regards
