Hi,

I have a requirement. I have to send mail to multiple people but neither of them should know that others have been copied in that mail. Each receiver should have their name displayed in the 'TO' tab and should not know who else have been copied in that same mail. If we use 'BCC' option then, even the reciever's name wouldn't be displayed in the mail. I need the reciever's name to be displayed in the 'TO' field.

Can anyone help me, plz ?

A wild guess, the receiver is also in the BCC list?

Ok, I'll fall for it. What on earth is the reason for this super secret mailing list ?

Is it a fully documented business requirement or just the whim of the current "Idiot of the day"

Do you use XMITIP? If yes, something like this will work:
Code:
//SYSTSIN  DD  *                                       
%XMITIP (<ANUJ.DHAWAN@some.COM>) -                 
    BCC (<some.one@some.COM>) -                 
   FROM ("ANUJ DHAWAN"<ANUJ.DHAWAN@some.COM>) -   
   FILEDD EMFILE FORMAT TXT/L/9 -                     
   FILENAME file name-
   SUBJECT 'subject'

Anuj,

the TS is missing the TO addressee in his sent mail.
In your example i also dont see a TO addressee, hence my first post.

Peter,

This job will send the atachment to Anuj in ""TO" and "some" in BCC. (SOME.XMITIP.REXX.EXEC is used for XMITIP )
Code:
//SENDMSG  EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01                             
//*-------------------------------------------------------
//SYSEXEC  DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=SOME.XMITIP.REXX.EXEC         
//SYSTSPRT DD  SYSOUT=*                                   
//EMFILE   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=attachement
//SYSTSIN  DD  *                                         
%XMITIP (<ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM>) -                   
    BCC (<SOME.ONE@SOME.COM>) -                     
   FROM ("ANUJ DHAWAN"<ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM>) -       
   FILEDD EMFILE FORMAT TXT/L/9 -                         
   FILENAME filename -
   SUBJECT 'subject'                                     
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                   


Parameters in SYSTIN will be converted to:
Code:
XMITIP: XMITIP Application level: 5.54                                       
XMITIP:                                                                     
XMITIP:                                                                     
XMITIP: XMITIP is freeware rather than a vendor supplied package. Thus there
XMITIP: is no formal support available.                                     
XMITIP:                                                                     
XMITIP: Message Addressing Information:                                     
XMITIP: From:  ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM                                     
XMITIP: To:    ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM                                     
XMITIP: Bcc:   SOME.ONE@SOME.COM                                       
XMITIP:                                                                     
XMITIP: The Mail Envelope:                                                   
XMITIP: Sender:   ANUJ DHAWAN <ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM>                     
XMITIP: Date:     20 Oct 2010 07:36:36 -0400                                 
XMITIP: From:     "ANUJ DHAWAN" <ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM>                   
XMITIP: To:       ANUJ.DHAWAN@SOME.COM                                   
XMITIP: Subject: Subject                                                   
Hope this helps.

Hello,

Not very elegant, but one way to do this is to simply send the e-mail n times - to one recipient each time. . .

following up on this thought:

when one receives an email that was sent as BCC,
one knows that they have received a 'secret' message,
and handles the info accordingly.

otherwise, why use the BCC?

this is a real idiot problem.

because of the requirement, the normal distribution list 'utility' can not be used.

only solution is separate emails.
load the system with extra garbage
because some manager wants to exert authority.

i'd tell him to ****-off (you can interpret that fluidly or functionally)

Hi,

The scenario is to send everyone a link to access to know about thier insurance details. I guess sending n times would be the right option. Thanks for all your help.

So each e-mail is actually different, specific to each recipient?

If so, then they obviously each need a separate e-mail.

If not, then what's wrong with BCC?

Before you clarify how to do something, you must clarify what you want to do.

Then, and this is important, have your manager/colleagues confirm, each agreeing in writing to the same specs, and if you are lucky, each agreeing on consecutive days to the same specs.
