i am useing cfmail on a mailing list that I would like to hide the recipients.  For this i am using the bcc attrib.  the problem is that the TO attrib is required.  is there a way to not use the TO attrib.  I do not want to use a generic email address in the TO field b/c this emails about 100 times a day and that would be annoying headache to clean out of someones mailbox.

What I have done is set up a generic email address and then on the server settings for that email address is to set up a rule to just delete any emails coming to that address

Not the best solution, but it worked for me.
