How to Send an Email to Unknown Recipients
- Create a new message in your email client of choice.
- Type Undisclosed Recipients in the To field, followed by your email address in the > field. For example, you may put Unknown Recipients.
- In the Bcc: area, use commas to denote the separation of all email addresses that should receive the message. If the recipients are already in your contact list, it should be rather simple to begin putting their names or addresses into the program’s autofill fields once they have been identified.
- Carry on with the typical process of constructing the message, including adding a topic and writing the message’s body, and then send it out after it is complete.
Is it a good idea to send emails to people you don’t know?
Sending an email to an anonymous recipient protects everyone’s privacy while also giving the communication a more professional aspect and presentation. Another option is to send an email to a group of recipients and include all of their email addresses in the To: or Cc: fields of the email. Not only does this appear unprofessional to anyone who looks at the list of people who received the letter, but it also exposes everyone’s email address to the public domain.
Instructions on how to use specific email programs
Even while these general instructions should be compatible with the vast majority of email clients, slight variations may occur. For details on how to send a message to unknown recipients using the Bcc field in your email client if it is not listed below, refer to the instructions for that particular email client.
