Windows 10: Tailoring Emails Sent to Multiple Contacts Solved

    Tailoring Emails Sent to Multiple Contacts


    Hello.

    I want to send emails to multiple contacts, separated by the ; of course, but if an individual replies, that reply would only be seen by me, the original sender.

    You see, I sent an email to multiple contacts and the replies were meant for me only - not for reading by the whole contact list I sent the email to. You follow?

    It is rather redundant to re-type/send individual emails saying the same thing to many contacts to get individual responses.

    Let's say, for example, I sent out a performance questionnaire to many contacts. I want the contacts to reply without the other contacts knowing what their responses are.

    Nothing 'shady' mind you. Just want contacts to freely express their opinions/suggestions/recommendations/help.

    Thanks for your input!

    You need to state which email client you are using.

    If using MS Office Suite with Outlook, Word and Excel you can use mailmerge. You just need to use an Excel spreadheet containing your contacts as the list source. If you include other fields like "name" then you can tailor messages.

    The problem is that I can easily do this stuff at work but I don't use MS Office on my home based machine.

    What you really need to know is how your email client handles mailmerge.

    You just should use the email BCC (Blind Carbon Copy), this way no one will be able to see other 's address
    and the answer will be only available to you.

    Two issues I see arise with multiple addressing, one is the Reply All on messages [which as roy111 mentioned BCC should help with] but the bigger one is most ISPs don't like bulk mailing, will mark the message as SPAM and either block it entirely or automatically send to the Junk folder.
