So many times I see people sending emails with the full distribution list in the TO field. This is such a high risk activity. All it takes is one of those email addresses to be hacked and they now have the email addresses of all those other people along with a reason to send them an email to get them to click on a link! Now you have exposed everyone to a "virus" which can be used in many bad ways.

There is a field BCC which does NOT expose everyone's email address. Typically this field is not visible and you have to click on the button to get to it.

So, to protect everyone on your email list, think 3X before you put everyone's mail in that TO field.
