Use BCC field.

Appreciate your prompt reply but regret to inform that I still have no
solution to my problem.
What I wanted to know is how do I send an email addressed to multiple
recipients without showing the recipients' email address. The mail that you
receive will show as: To: Undisclosed-Recipient.

This is not an Outlook feature.

Some form of sending individual emails is the way to go. Either try mail
merge (look it up in the help) or try our email scheduler
(http://www.repeatmail.com) which will allow you to send multiple individual
emails, html or plain text, with attachments, either as a one-off or
regularly at a specified time and interval. The recipients list can be drawn
from your Outlook Contacts, a plain text file,database or spreadsheet. It
also allows you to specify the interval between each send so as to avoid
triggering any spam limits on your account. Outlook is not needed to send.
Your machine needs to be switched on, but you don't even have to be logged
in. Works with Win 98/XP/2003/Vista

If you use the Bcc field, your recipients won't be able to see each other's
addresses. What's in the To field is immaterial, but if you want ti to say
"Undisclosed-Recipients", create a contact whose Display As field is that
string. Give it your own mail address and put that contact in the To field.

Re: How to send mail without disclosing recipient's email address

Great! I have finally managed.
I did as you suggested... select one of my contacts and in the "Display As"
field I typed in "Undisclosed Recipient".
When I sent messages to multiple contacts, I select the contact with the
display as Undisclosed Recipient and the rest under BCC. None of their email
address are shown in the mail.
Works also with Hotmail.

Thanks.
