Email entire address book safely?

Hi, I'm planning on changing ISP very soon and will want to let everyone in my address book know of the change of email account that will ensue.

I can't find any way of sending a mass email out, without it including the email address of everyone. Does any way exist to do this? It's not that I don't trust anyone in my address book but I don't like the thought of sending email addresses out for all to see like that.
Anything I can do?

Send it to yourself with everybody else in the bcc: field. To show the bcc: field in Outlook Express View > All headers when composing the message.

Thanks for that.

But now a very basic question that I can't find the answer to. How to I send to my address book as a whole rather than typing in the addresses individualy? I'm sure a button exists to allow me to do this but I can't for the life of me find it.

Ah. Think I've just figured it out; by clicking on the bcc butoon!
Amazing what you can learn when you start experimenting!
(Just hope I don't regreat saying that..!)

You may find some ISPs are suspicious of really large mailings; if so, break the adderss book down into smaller chunks. I've had to do that sometimes.
