The first question you probably want you ask is what is BCC? Ahh, good question. Well without getting too technical, BBC hides the email addresses to your recipients. BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy. For example if you send and email to ten people they will be able to see everyone else’s email address. If you send the email using the Bcc option then all they will see is undisclosed recipients.
How to use BCC to send emails to undisclosed recipients in Thunderbird?
- Open your Thunderbird email program.
- Choose write from the top menu to start a new email.
- Click on the contacts button to see contacts list.
- To choose one email simply double click on the email. It will be added to your email.
- To make this individual email bcc press on the drop down arrow next to the email address you have added. See the screenshot below.
- A menu will drop down and you can choose Bcc.
- This will change that email to bcc only. You can do this for all emails you add, or move to the next step to do it in bulk.
- To add more than one email to bcc you need to select them all. Do this by holding the CTRL key in while clicking on them. The ones you select will turn blue.
- Right click on the blue selection and a menu will appear. Choose Add to Bcc field.
