This came across my desk and I had to forward it on:)
I'm not sure what this is. It came to my personal email address and I think
that the intention might have been for it to go to the entire list(???).
The "to:" lists an "Alice Marie" - which, unless I have another personality
that I don't yet know about :), isn't me.

Just a quick note on email that can explain this (so everyone on the list
If Bob was sending his message to Pedtalk, Alice, and 5 other people, he
could put hidden@email-address in the BCC: box on the message. This is Blind
Carbon Copy. The message will look to you like it is really for Alice and
your name won't appear on it.
This is the proper method for sending email to multiple people, ESPECIALLY
to protect other's identity. No one else sees the entire recipient list.
If everyone did this instead of listing 50 names in the To: box, we'd ALL
get a lot less SPAM. This is the #1 way that SPAMmers get names - lots of
peoples email addresses visible in a To: or CC: entry. Try BCC:, you'll
like the results.
PS: this message was sent that way - addressed to Kristin with
hidden@email-address in the BCC: field.
It will probably cause this message to bypass your incoming email filters
if you use them.
