Setting Distribution List to Always BCC

I have a 200+ Distribution List in my Contacts. I use it with my Outlook
2007 email.

Once in a while, I mistakenly send the whole list with To:, and thus I show
all distriubtion list names to each of the 200+ people receiving it.

This is not only embarassing on my part and shows a lack of respect for all
members of the list, but I often get return emails from some list members and
I need to apologize and offer to take them off the list.

Is there a way to use a distribution list only with BCC?

I don't think you can default a dist list to a sending type (To, CC or BCC)

No. How a message is sent is not a function of the contact or address itself
but in what recipient field you put the contact or address. You just have to
be a little more careful when sending your messages.
