How do i set up a distribution list in Outlook so that the recipients can't see who has been sent the email... i.e i want to set up a list called Shareholders and when it arrives the recipient should just see the name of the distrubution list, not its members

I don't want to do this through BCC; thanks

What's wrong with doing this through BCC?

Here's links to instructions on how to set up, all using BCC though:

lz7cjc,

There is no way to hide the addresses without using the BCC field.   Also, put an address in To field, or many email servers will put Undisclosed-Recipients on To field. Spam filters key on that work and put such email in Spam folder.
