I want to be able to use Outlook Expres to send out my newsletter. I want to be able to keep an address book with all the names and e-mail addresses in it (or just e-mail addresses is possible) and when sending it I want it to show the e-mail address to which I am sending it to in the "to" field, instead of "undisclosed recipient" as it shows at present. I use the bcc field, but get the "undisclosed recipient" coming up. I don't mind if anyone suggests another e-mail program, as long as it is free and easy to use
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote/font><HR>From dv3: If so, try one of the free perl/php/asp/* weblications to send out your newsletter. They're faster and more efficient, and an added bonus is that most are free.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I have tried a couple and haven't been happy so as my email list is small have just relied on Outlook...
I would rather use a separate program rather than Outlook for any newsletter that I send...
p.s. When I use /BCC in Outlook I get my email address that I am using in the TO: and FROM: lines.

I had exactly this same problem before publishing my first ezine. Someone recommended an e-mail program called Calypso, which has a "Blind Send" feature that will do exactly what you want.
In general it is a pretty good program - very easy to use. You can import lists fron DBs really easily, as well as Eudora address books and messages. It will not do the same for Outlook/Outlook Express.
Calypso does cost $40 US (I think), but they give a 30 free day trial period. It is downloadable from www.mcsdallas.com. Try it out for free and see if it's worth it to you to buy. That's exactly what I did. The "Blind Send" function alone made it worth it. Hope this helps.
