It’s that time of year again for forwarding on silly emails etc

So just to remind everyone to stay safe

The Hazards of Improperly Forwarding Email
When you forward a message, try to remove all the previous email addresses and if sending to multiple email recipients, use the blind carbon (BCC) feature.

After clicking on the forward button, simply delete the addresses from the message.

If you want to forward to multiple people and not have them see who else you forwarded it to, rather than putting them in the To or Cc address, put them in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) section instead.
Remember, when you forward things and you leave your friends’ names and email addresses out in plain view like that, you are putting them and you in what could be grave danger.

So, be safe, be careful and use Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) and remove all personal email addresses from the body of the email when forwarding emails.
