I’m switching e-mail addresses from ATT.net to
Gmail.com, and I’d like to tell all my contacts with
one e-mail. Is there a way to do it without revealing my
entire contact list to every recipient of the e-mail?
is there a way I can have ATT.net forward my mail to
Gmail for a period of time after I terminate the
ATT.net e-mail is run by Yahoo, which makes it easy to
send a single e-mail to a list of people without
revealing the list to the recipients.
works by putting just one e-mail address in the
"TO" box of the e-mail, and putting the rest
of the e-mail addresses in the "BCC" (blind
carbon copy) box. Everyone will receive the same e-mail,
but each person will be able to see only the single
address in the TO box.)
even better alternative is to put your own e-mail
address in the TO box, while putting all the recipients’
addresses in the BCC box. That way, you’ll get the
main e-mail, and your contacts will all get copies.
While your contacts may question why they got an e-mail
addressed to you, you can explain in the message that it
was done to protect everyone’s privacy.
e-mail process is easy because you don’t have to type
all the recipients’ addresses into the BCC box. Go to
the ATT.net contact list, and check the BCC box next to
each e-mail address you want included in the group
e-mail. For details, see tinyurl.com/ld34eda.
you’d like to create a special contact list that
includes only the people you want to reach with this
particular e-mail, see tinyurl.com/kzmrf62.
you’ve closed your ATT.net account, it won’t forward
anymore. So leave it open for a few months and set it to
forward all mail to your new Gmail account. That way you
won’t lose contact with the people who fail to note
your new e-mail address. To set up ATT.net forwarding to
Gmail, see tinyurl.com/mm4sj3c.
When I try to download important forms on my Windows 7
PC, I usually receive the message "Your current
security settings do not allow this file to be
downloaded." How can I adjust my security settings
so that I can download these harmless files?

Many people have received this error message, which is
caused by an overly restrictive security setting in
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Web browser. Once you
change the setting, you’ll no longer be blocked from
downloading and opening the files. Find the settings
list in Internet Explorer, go to Tools and choose
Internet Options. Then click the Security tab and the
button labeled Custom Level.
some experts debate which setting to change. Some say
you should enable the "downloads" setting
without restrictions (see tinyurl.com/q7dnx8y.) Others
say it’s safer to change the "launching
applications and unsafe files" setting so you’ll
be asked for permission about each questionable download
