A Note on Mass Emails

All Posts No Comments

It amazes me how many people still do this: If you are sending out a mass email–e.g. “everyone should read this Forbes piece on Obama’s health plan!!”–then please put your 3 dozen recipients’ email addresses in the BCC field of your email. That way, people’s privacy is more protected, and they are not susceptible to someone hitting Reply All just to say, “Wow thanks for sending that!”

In some cases, to show you care and how special people are, it might make sense to let all the recipients of your email see each other. But if the list is more than a dozen, nobody feels special.
