Let’s hope peace breaks out among my irate customers, after I made the mistake of not realising how much was going to change now that I have upgraded to Sierra!  I really do apologise that the first “newz from julz” email I sent out after all these months, wasn’t private.

See : Whoops, I found a Glitch and A Digital Nightmare.

It seems I was wrong in my original explanation – I was searching for all the help info about the “contacts” software, and I couldn’t find a solution.  In the old version, there was a box to tick for any group you wanted to keep private, and because I’d put the mailing list groups together over the last few years, I didn’t even imagine that they no longer were PRIVATE!

I did finally did another test this morning, with my sister and a cousin – who wouldn’t mind each others email addresses being displayed, and I got the same result as I had with the mailing list!

Then I “asked Siri” but it couldn’t find an answer either, “he” directed me to Office, which I don’t use, and a discontinued BBC page – which actually mentioned the Bcc trick.

Then I had an online “conversation” with Apple Help and found that they hadn’t bothered putting a privacy facility into the new “contacts” software – because you just use the Bcc field for the group when you a send an email!

It’s simple isn’t it – but I do wish they had put a line about that in the support section for “contacts”, it would have saved me a lot of time and worry, and my customers a great deal of annoyance.

Sorry – promise for sure now that it won’t happen again!

So now I can send out another email to the mailing list to apologise to everyone, cos not many will have checked this blog!
