Yesterday I received an email blast that went to 100 people. I know the exact number because all their email addresses were on the To line.
If I were a spammer gathering addresses to pad my email address book, I would have new people to prey on at Studley, SUBWAY, Success Metrics, Sulamerica, Sundt Construction, Sun Sports Cycle, Toshiba, Tartan Supply, University of Detroit Mercy, and many other organizations.
How frustrating for the hundred of us to have our contact information spread so thoughtlessly!
Please share this reminder with your coworkers who send messages to large groups of people outside your organization:
Do not put strangers' addresses on the To line. Put them on the Bcc line, or use email marketing services such as AWeber and Constant Contact.
