Outlook and BCC

I want to send some standard text  messages to members of a group in Outlook 2003

I am inserting all members of the group into the BCC box.

When the message arrives it does not show who the message is To: just shows empty.
Can anyone say how I get to recipient to show in the To: line.
Also in Outlook is there any way to show the recipients name eg Dear Tom,

Thanks for any help.

BWT: You didn't specify which version of outlook you are using... so I hope that all the graphics in the above link apply to your setup.

Sounds like you are wanting to do a mail merge instead of a group email.  That's how to can program the Dear < >, and get the To: field properly set for each user.
