I ran across some information regarding email using undisclosed recipients that I have been trying to test but have found an anomaly that is confusing to me.

The intent was to prevent the ability of others to see the names of all who were sent the message. To do this, the post I was reading said to put the "group" name (such as "everybody") in the BCC field and leave the To: field empty. 'Everybody' is a group name that we use which includes all the people in the company.

I fully expected an error but did not get one. According to my SENT folder, the email was sent. Since the Group named "Everybody' included my own address, I expected to receive a copy of the test email so i could see what it looked like when used in this manner. However, I did not get a copy at all.

I checked with some of the other people who did get a copy and they told me that the email arrived with no name in any of the address fields. Before I try any further tests using this setup, I would like to know why all the people in the "everybody" group received a copy of the email but I did not even though my name is part of that group.

Usual cause is antispam filtering due to no names in the to field - that is the first sign of spam, especially when the sender is the same address.

My recommendation is mail merge instead, but if you are going to do this, put your own address in the to field.
