How to BCC People with Gmail
Before now, I only make use of my “To” field to send an email. But, I wondered how I can send an email at once to more than one email address? Now I know how to do that even making it secretly. You too can also do that. How? We have made an accurate guide to help you.
Bcc is one way that prevents reply–all snarls if someone should reply to a list. It as well keeps the individual’s information private even though there was highlighted in the same field. Upon all this, Bcc still has a disadvantage.
To Use Bcc,
- Open your Gmail account and proceed to “Compose” to bring a new email window.
- Look for Bcc by the left side of the compose window. It is directly opposite the “To” field. Click on it.
- Enter the original recipient in the “To’ field. Doing this will make that address visible to every recipient. So to avoid this, don’t enter any email in the “To” field.
- Now enter all the email addresses you want to reach out to without disclosing them to each other, in the Bcc field.
- Type in the message you want to send across and click on SEND.
