Hiding Recipient's Addresses

Is there a way in mutt to send an email to a list, but with only the name
of each recipient shown on his copy.

In other words, a recipient does not see who else got a copy.

It is not a feature of mutt, but why don't you jaust use BCC:?

I have not used Bcc: in mutt yet, as I have been using it only a couple of
weeks or so, but in all other email packages I have used, the recipient
gets an email address to XX s and his copy showing that he is the
recipient of a Bcc. So it is obvious to him that it is not the original.

I have assumed that mutt works the same way.

If there are no addresses in the To field, only Bcc's, then that problem
kind of goes away.

Having said that, for what you're after I don't think the solution lies in
mutt itself. The easy solution (which is therefore probably wrong!) to me
would seem to use a shell loop:

for address in `cat addresses` ; do
cat message | mutt -s "Subject" $address
done

(For example. Untested, may not work.)

Thanks for the idea. I will try it in a day or two. Can't today.

I was not aware, since I had not tried it, that mutt would allow me to
send email with the "To:" empty.
