Send emails to undisclosed recipients while working with iCloud Mail. Do it without revealing addresses.
If you have a group in which the members do not know each other and do not need to know each other even their e-mail addresses, do not send e-mail to the group in which you have put all the recipient addresses in the "To:" header line and no longer in the "Cc:" line. So each recipient can see these addresses.
... Without revealing addresses?
You must send an email to the group where you put all the addresses of the recipients in the "Bcc:" line and in the "To" line, you are going to put a false recipient called Undisclosed recipients so that everyone understands at least this that is happening. You will use your own email address for the bogus recipient.
It's easy in iCloud Mail
It's easy to add to all recipients in iCloud Mail the emailing of a list of undisclosed addresses, and it can be made more comfortable with one or two contact entries.
