Hide your mail address in email forwards

Do you belong to the category ‘forward emails’? Well, I mean, are you one of those who keeps forwarding emails, to and fro, just to share all the fun emails? So? Do you realize that the emails you send are forwarded to all their friends , exposing your email and all of your friends email addresses?

So, maintain caution ,play safe ,protect your id from falling into the hands of spammers!
Just follow these two simple tips:
  1. Use BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) to type in the multiple recipients email addresses that you plan to forward . By this, none of the email addresses will show in the forwarded emails.
  2. This is also a politeness to the people you are forwarding to, as they do not have to scroll through pages of email addresses to get to the joke that you thought was so very funny ,so as to forward it
That’s it! So very simple!
Some email programs do not have the BCC listed, in that case, look for link or button that says ADD BCC.




Good..play safe!:)

A great post! I hope more folks will begin to use this method especially for mass/multiple recipients mailing, it's good spam prevention! A couple of years ago, I emailed the instructions for BCC use to all of my contact's - just a little {nudge} he-he! :-D
