- If you get something that says "Forward this to everyone you know!", pretend you do not know me.
- If you must send something to multiple people, practice safe e-mailing and do it in the following manner:
- Place your e-mail address in the "To:" field
- Place all the other e-mail addresses in the "Bcc:" (Blind carbon copy) field.
This helps prevent people who receive your mass e-mail from getting spam later.
You see, if everyones e-mail address is on the e-mail, if anybody has their computer hacked and the e-mail addresses harvested, everyone you sent mail to is screwed
Otherwise, if you use the BCC field, the only people who have their e-mail addresses harvested are you and the recipient of the e-mail.
