a kindness by doing that!! 


A friend who is a computer expert received the following directly from a
system administrator for a corporate system. It is an excellent message that
ABSOLUTELY applies to ALL of us who send e-mails. Please read the short
letter below, even if you're sure you already follow proper procedures.. 

Do you really know how to forward e-mails? 50% of us do; 50% DO NOT. 

Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it? 

Every time you forward an e-mail there is information left over from the
people who got the message before you, namely their e-mail addresses &
names.  As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds,
and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor sap to get a
virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to every e-mail address
that has come across his computer. Or, someone can take all of those
addresses and sell them or send junk mail to them in the hopes that you will
go to the site and he will make five cents for each hit. That's right, all
of that inconvenience over a nickel! 

How do you stop it? Well, there are several easy steps: 

(1) When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses that
appear in the body of the message (at the top). That's right, DELETE them.
Highlight them and delete them, backspace them , cut them, whatever it is
you know how to do. It only takes a second You MUST click the "Forward"
button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the
body and headers of the message. If you don't click on "Forward" first, you
won't be able to edit the message at all. 

(2) Whenever you send an e-mail to more than one person, do NOT use the To:
or Cc: fields for adding e-mail addresses. Always use the BCC: (blind carbon
copy) field for listing the e-mail addresses. This is the way the people you
send to will only see their own e-mail address. If you don't see your BCC:
option click on where it says To: and your address list will appear.
Highlight the address and choose BCC: and that's it, it's that easy. When
you send to BCC: your message will automatically say "Undisclosed
Recipients" in the "TO:" field of the people who receive it. 

(3) Remove any "FW :" in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if
you wish or even fix spelling. 

(4) ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the actual e-mail you are reading.
Ever get those e-mails that you have to open 10 pages to read the one page
with the information on it? By Forwarding from the actual page you wish
someone to view, you stop them from having to open many e-mails just to see
what you sent. 

(5) Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition? It states a position
and asks you to add your name and address and to forward it to 10 or 15
people or your entire address book. The email can be forwarded on and on and
can collect thousands of names and email addresses. A FACT: The completed
petition is actually worth a couple of bucks to a professional spammer
because of the wealth of valid names and email addresses contained therein.
If you want to support the petition, send it as your own personal letter to
the intended recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal
letter than a laundry list of names and email address on a petition.
(Actually, if you think about it, who's supposed to send the petition in to
whatever cause it supports? And don 't believe the ones that say that the
email is being traced, it just aint so!) 

(6) One of the main ones I hate is the ones that say that something like,
"Send this email to 10 people and you'll see something great run across your
screen." Or, sometimes they'll just tease you by saying something really
cute will happen. IT AINT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!! (Trust me, I'm still seeing some
of the same ones th at I waited on 10 years ago!) I don't let the bad luck
ones scare me either, they get trashed. (Could be why I haven't won the

(7) Before you forward an Amber Alert, or a Virus Alert, or some of the
other ones floating around nowadays, check them out before you forward them.
Most of them are junk mail that's been circling the net for YEARS!  Just
about everything you receive in an email that is in question can be checked
out at Snopes. Just go to  <> 

Its really easy to find out if it's real or not. If it's not, please don't
pass it on. 

So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses. 

Finally, here's an idea!!! Let's send this to everyone we know (but strip my
address off first, please). This is something that SHOULD be forwarded.
