If you don't want everyone getting the message to see all the other addresses then click in the bcc box and click on the first address then hold 'shift' and click on the last address (these will see the message but only their name will appear on the email).

The 'reply all' option just means send to the sender & anyone else the original mail was sent to (excluding you). If a mail is sent only to you reply all will just send it back to the sender.

Create Mail - Click on the CC address book icon(of course, the recipients need to be in your address book). This will open your address book and give you the BCC option. You also need to enter an address in tho 'To' field on the new mail, just use your own. The recipients will not see the other addresses.

Your OE may have been set up not showing the bcc box (that's what normally happens). To make the bcc box available open a new blank message box; click on Tools and then from the options that appear click on "Select recipients". Click on the name you want to send to and then on the bcc button beside the box of that name. rep[eat thsi for all the people you want to send to without them getting a lot of email adresses. Put one name in the "To" box (similar process to putting nam,es in bcc box)and that's it. Now each person will get just a reply but he/she won't know who else you've written to.

In OE, (having clicked on the 'Create Mail' icon) you can get the Bcc box to show by holding down the Alt button whilst pressing B. Repeat the operation to 'unshow' it.
