Microsoft Outlook is a professional e-mail application that is part of the Microsoft Office software suite. When sending e-mail with Outlook, you have the option of using the "Bcc:" field to prevent recipients from seeing who else is receiving the message. To ensure that the message does not end up in the recipients' junk or spam folder, you should use the term "Undisclosed Recipients" in the "To" field.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • PC running Windows XP or later
  • Microsoft Outlook 2007 or later
