I have only been trying to do this for a couple of days. I receive the equivalent of what I am trying to send from someone else. After to many hours researching, I’ve come to the conclusion I don’t know how to ask the question.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I prefer to follow your instructions.
Tech Support Specialist: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 10 months ago

I am sending 4 shots:
1. The sample email received; note that it only shows the address as LSTeam
2. The email forwarded
3. The contact list under label "Associates"
4. The Contact on our list known as "LS Team".What I want to achieve is to send to "LS Team" without all the individual addresses showing up when the addressee receives the message. How do I hide the list?

You can't unless you BCC them, you will see see the people but the recipients wont.

Sending to groups only work in an organisation.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
