With E-mail Addresses. . .
are two very important things you absolutely MUST know about e-mail:
When you forward
or send e-mails to your entire address book, it's very important to use the "Bcc:"
field instead of the "To:" or "Cc:" field.
you send e-mails using the "To:" or "Cc:" field, ALL of the
recipients can read everyone else's e-mail address.
reason this is a problem is that any one of these recipients can click a few buttons
and add all these e-mail addresses to their own address book. Some people do this
automatically without thinking about it; others maliciously use the addresses
for spam campaigns.
easily avoid all this and do your part in promoting a happy Internet community,
place your own address in the To: field and all the other addresses in the Bcc:
field. That stands for "blind carbon copy" and will make the addresses
invisible to the recipients. And by sending yourself a copy, you ensure the e-mail
was sent correctly.
just as easy for you and much nicer for your friends.
Use the Bcc: field to send to more than one address.
percent of all "virus warnings," "amazing stories," or "interesting
facts" you receive in your e-mail are HOAXES.
a simple rule: No matter how authentic the e-mail looks or sounds, before you
forward it to ANYONE, check it out FIRST at the Urban Legends Reference Pages
at this link:
plug a key word or two from the e-mail into the Snopes search box, and a full
report will appear, letting you know if it is real or a hoax. It's fast, easy,
and actually fun.
these two simple rules and you will be doing a great service to your friends and
the Internet community.
you so much!

above rules, of course!)
