A mailing list is a collection of names and addresses used by an individual or an organization to send material to multiple recipients. The term is often extended to include the people subscribed to such a list, so the group of subscribers are referred to as "the mailing list", or simply "the list".
If you wish to hide the list of destination addresses from other recipients, you need to put your email address in the "To" field and the recipients’ addresses in the "Bcc" field.
Bcc: all recipients
Variations may exist for different email clients.

Mailing lists can be archived into a form that can be retrieved via the web. The MHonArc program is used to convert email to web pages. For example, campus announcements may be archived and stored on the web. It works by setting up a special email address on www.usask.ca. Any mail sent to that address is archived on www.usask.ca. More information is available at the MhonArc webpage.
