TAG | ipad undisclosed recipients
I was sent a question by Brenda, an owner of my iPad tutorial app, who asked if it was possible to send an email to “undisclosed recipients” from her iPad. Yes, you can – let me explain.
First off, for others reading this, if you’re not familiar with how this works, sometimes you may have received an email that said it was addressed to “undisclosed recipients”.
This is done by using something called “BCC” which is short for “Blind Carbon Copy”. BCC is used to send copies of an email to multiple people without revealing the list of people receiving the email.
This is something most email programs can do, and something I’ve recommended people to do for years in my computer training courses, but fortunately it’s not exclusive to computers. I’ve recommended people use BCC when sending to multiple people to help protect the recipients’ privacy and to help stop the spread of viruses, worms, and spam.
The iPad can send using BCC, but there’s a setting you may need to turn on first.
