Whichever way you regard it: it does not look good. A long and winding worm of email addresses does not look good in the To: field when you receive an email, and it does not look good in the Cc: field.
The email address snake does not look good in the emails you send either, of course. Fortunately, you can send messages to more than a hand full of recipients in AIM Mail and AOL Mail without revealing their addresses using the Bcc: field.
Send an Email to Undisclosed Recipients in AIM Mail or AOL Mail
To send a message without revealing its recipients in AIM Mail or AOL Mail:
- Begin with a new message.
- Click Bcc.
- Enter the recipients under Bcc:.
- Use complete email addresses ("email@example.com", for example) or screen names (for AOL and AIM contacts, e.g. "youyou5").
- Separate multiple recipients with commas, as in "firstname.lastname@example.org, youyou5".
- You can insert recipients efficiently using AIM Mail and AOL Mail groups, of course, by typing the group name.
- Make sure you keep the To: field empty.
- Compose your message as you usually do and finally click Send.
