Learn how to minimize all response strings by blindly copying a list of recipients and send hidden copies to recipients in iOS messaging.
If an iPhone email user wants to send email to more than one person, they must align them in the To field. A long list of email addresses makes for an unsightly and unwieldy message header, and it reveals all of the addresses to each recipient as well.
N.B: this procedure has been tested with iOS 12.
How to hide recipients in iOS messaging
To send hidden copies, use the Bcc field of the Mail application:
Create a new message, then press the Cc / Bcc, From line to expand it. In case you have added only one email account on your iPhone, the line will be displayed only in Cc / Bcc;
Press the Bcc line, then add one or more addresses;
Add at least one to recipient. To send it to you using the "Undisclosed Recipients" line, add a new contact called Undisclosed Recipients and use one of your own email addresses. This specific sender name is an informal Internet standard indicating that the actual distribution list has been blindly copied;
Compose and send your message normally.
The recipients of your email will not see any of the other addresses to which the email was sent. You can add a note explaining that your email has been sent to other people if you think it is necessary. You can even include their names but without the need to divulge their email addresses or risk a cascade of correspondence with all responses.
