Showing only names on cc instead of email address (for confidentiality purposes)? Possible?

When sending a copy of an e-mail to addressees, how can I block the e-mail address showing up, as cc, from recipients (as confidential info) and yet showing the names of the ccs? Is this possible? Please advise. Thank you.

Are these people who you have entered into your Address Book? Normally if you do, they are listed by name, not email address.

I am not certain. This is actually for a client who is inquiring. What I believe he wants to do is completely block the email address from showing at all when the recipient opens the email. That instead when the email is opened it will only show the name of the various cc recipients but not give away any of their email addresses.Thanks!Smiley Happy

If I understand your question correctly then, you client probably needs to be using "bcc:" to blind carbon copy the recipients.

 

He wants to CC people on an email but not show their email address? I don't think there will be a way to make that 100% foolproof. I know on my BB and in my Outlook as well, on "most" cc'd recipients, I can click on or hover over the other recipient's names and it will show their address.
