    I want to send out an email newsltter type thing to a group of business
    contacts. Only polite that a recipient should not see all the other
    email addresses. So I open the Address Book in Thunderbird, make a New
    List, give it a name and drag all the contacts I want into that list.
    then I can go 'Write' for a new message, and put the name of the new
    list in the 'To:' box, so far so good, only the list name shows as a
    recipient. Can anyone confirm that when the mail is sent the recipients
    won't see all the other emails? It isn't a question of high security,
    just etiquette.

    Put your own address or a nul address (which can be a pretense of the
    mailing list name) into the To:-field. Drag all the intended recipients
    into a Bcc:-field. (Bcc = Blind Carbon Copy)

    All the best, Timo
