Have you ever wondered why
you're getting e-mail from someone you don't even know?
Fact is, it's probably a virus. One that may have
infected someone's computer and is probably one that
sends emails out to everyone in their address book.
But I don't even know this person, how did they get in
my address book?
Fact is, in Microsoft Outlook Express (which is
the default e-mail client that comes with Windows) when
you hit reply (or in some cases, reply to all) every
recipient in the TO and CC field is AUTOMATICALLY added
to your address book. The BCC field not only hides the
addresses from would be spammers, but it also WILL NOT
add these addresses to your address book.
Not only is it a common courtesy to use the BCC
field when sending a mass e-mail, but it makes sense to
avoid spreading unnecessary e-mail problems. So next
time you mass e-mail your friends and family, think
about this and use caution.
