Same as Outlook Express, if you have ever used it.

<Canned>

To use the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) feature, In Create Mail, either click 
View | All Headers and type in the addresses separated by a; Or: Click the 
To button. You will see your list of contacts and the choice of putting 
them in the To, CC, or BCC field. Click on an address, then click BCC to 
add it. Repeat for all the contacts you want. (Note: Most ISPs have limits 
as to how many e-mails you can send a one time. 25 is common, but it 
varies).

Put your own address in the To box. This is the only address/name that any 
recipient will see. If you leave the To field blank, some people may not 
receive the e-mail due to message rules they have set up, or restrictions 
set by their ISP.

You can also make an entry in the Address Book using your e-mail address, 
but putting something like Mailing List in the display field.

*********************

You can also create groups if you send mail to the same people often.

To create a group of contacts:

You can create a single group name (or alias) to use when sending a 
message to several contacts at once. Simply create a group name and add 
individual contacts to the group. Then, just type the group name in the To 
box when you send e-mail.

  1.. In the Address Book, select the folder in which you want to create a 
group. Click New on the toolbar, and then click New Group.
  2.. The Properties dialog box opens. In the Group Name box, type the 
name of the group.
  3.. There are several ways to add people to the group:
    a.. To add a person from your Address Book list, click Select Members, 
and then click a name from the Address Book list.
    b.. To add a person directly to the group without adding the name to 
your Address Book, type the person's name and e-mail address in the lower 
half of the Properties dialog box, and then click Add.
    c.. To add a person to both the group and your Address Book, click New 
Contact and fill in the appropriate information.
    d.. To use a directory service, click Select Members, and then click 
Find. Select a directory service from the drop-down list at the end of the 
text box. After finding and selecting an address, it is automatically 
added to your Address Book.
  4.. Repeat for each addition until your group is defined.

Note

a.. To view a list of your groups separately from the Address Book 
listings, in the Address Book, on the View menu, make sure that Folders 
and Groups is selected.

b.. You can create multiple groups, and contacts can belong to more than 
one group.

If you want to send to a group without all the addresses being shown to 
each recipient, open the Address Book and make a new entry. Enter the 
group name in the Display field, but use your address. (Some ISPs require 
a legitimate address in the To line, and the recipients will know it is 
from the group).

Click the To button | Enter the group name using your address in the To 
field | Enter the Group in the BCC field.

I think the only way is to address the mail to yourself and put all
addressees in BCC.
