How to Send an Email to Undisclosed Recipients

Good afternoon,

I have read multiple threads on here re: the subject of sending emails to undisclosed recipients but can’t seem to find one specific to creating this in eMClient.
Is it possible directly within the software.
At the beginning I thought I was supposed to create a Distribution List but that keeps crashing so I can’t test it.
Can someone help me please?
TIA for your time,

Undisclosed recipients just means BCC. Instead of entering the email addresses in the To field, enter them all in the BCC field.

noone will be able to view recipient’s email that are in bcc?

Yes, they will not be able to see the other addresses.

I want to create a “group list” of about 12 emails so when I send emails to these people, I can just click on that group but also, I don’t want the others to see the fellow recipients emails as they are personal emails.  Does that make sense?

Yes, makes sense. There are two ways to do that.

  1. Add the 12 addresses manually to the BCC field.

  2. Create a distribution list, and add the distribution list to the BCC field.

You just thought me what bcc meant.  wow, I didn’t even know that.
Now I have another issue that I didn’t mention and maybe you can help me that?
Everytime I create a Dist List, eMClient crashes and reboots.  I noticed that after the multiple attempts, that once it reboots, I try to double click on the list to add memebers and see if it would work and crashes before I edit it.
Any idea?

It may be related to the issue that you can’t save a distribution list on a server, so best is to create a distribution list and save it in Local Folders contacts.

Once you have added the details to the list, make sure you select /Local Folders/Contacts/ before you click save.

See if that makes any difference.

If you can’t see the Local Folders, you can enable them in Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Show Local Folders.

I read other threads on this issue and so I tried the Local Folders/Contact and still the same result.
There’s one person name Ian that said he found out that his ISP has been changed but didn’t know what that meant.

Yes,Ian’s comment refers to his email provider probably supporting distribution lists before, but now doesn’t. Often you see that a distribution list saved to a synced folder will end up empty because it is not a recognized format that the server can process. 

If eM Client is still crashing when you save the distribution list, can you try the steps I recommended in that thread?

  1. Are there any specific addresses added to the list that cause this problem?
    2. If you create a new list and add one or two addresses, do you still get the error?
    3. How about if you create a list with no addresses. Do you still get the error?

You can also download and install the latest version of eM Client from if you have not done so already. 

So I created a list with no addresses like you mentioned, no issues…I added myself only to test…no issues…went back in to add 2 more, crashes :frowning:
