I have been receiving emails lately that have either 'undisclosed' as

the recipient or showing the senders name as both the sender and

recipient.

How is this done?

Using 2007 Outlook

Also have one email that comes in with the sender and recipient names

the same and it shows as being forwarded out on arrivial.

Why would this be, there is no rule set up to do this to anyone that I

can see and I can not find how to tell who it has been forwarded to.

You were BCC'd on those messages. Sender sent the message to himself and

BCC'd you.

Same thing without the 'Sent the message to himself' part. (ie, the To line

was blank)

It depends on the sending client and mail servers, IIRC. What is it you want

to do?

Just leave it blank and let whatever happens happen.

Or do a mail merge so people get their own address in the To line.

Create a contact, name it Undisclosed Recipients and give it an email address

of none@none.none and put that in the To line. You'll get a NDR, and not

all clients will show the display name, but, that might work for you.

Alternatively, give the contact your own mail address to prevent the NDR.
