So much to see (and photograph), so entertaining mates around, so much to try, there's no time to compose an email for each prospective photo recipient. They're also "all kinds of people", and most don't know each other so putting them all in in the To: or Cc: field is out of the question. (You'd reveal the email addresses and names; something you wouldn't want others to do with your details either.)
Create an Address Book Entry for "Undisclosed recipients"
An "Undisclosed recipients" contact will make addressing the message easier. To set it up (if you have already created a Mac OS X Mail Address Book entry for "undisclosed recipients" and sync your iPhone Contacts with Address Book, you can skip this step):
- Open Contacts.
- Tap +.
- If you cannot see the + button in the top navigation bar, go to the desired address book group first.
- Tap First Last.
- Enter "Undisclosed" under First.
- Type "recipients" under Last.
- Tap Save.
- Now tap Add new Email.
- Enter your own email address under Email.
- Tap Save.
- Tap Save again.
- Press the Home button.
Send an Email to Undisclosed Recipients in iPhone Mail
To send an email addressed to "undisclosed recipients" in iPhone Mail:
- Start with a new email message in iPhone Mail.
- Tap + in the To: line.
- Look for and tap the "Undisclosed recipients" address book entry created before.
- Of course, you can also start typing "undisclo..." and use the auto-complete entry.
- Tap on Cc/Bcc:.
- If you have multiple accounts set up in iPhone Mail, tap Cc/Bcc, From: instead.
- Now tap on the Bcc: field.
- Enter the desired recipients using address auto-completion or the + button.
- Go on to enter the Subject: field, compose the message and eventually tap Send.
