Hello friends,

These questions have probably been answered many times before, but I can't find them by searching. If anyone can help, thank you sincerely.

1) Every day I send out an e-mail to a number of recipients containing the same message and a link to a newly created page on my website. I actually do this manually one-by-one which is very time-consuming. How do I send the same e-mail to a number of people without them seeing the address of other recipients? This would lighten my workload and save time. 

2) How do I set up a discussion forum on my website? I want to start an online community of sorts for readers with the same interests and I'd like to moderate the posts so that I don't get any offensive comments. 

Any feedback would be most appreciated.  Sorry if these are redundant questions. 

Thank you!

1) Under the addressing bar in a new message, there is a link to Add BCC. This is blind carbon copy. It will hide all addresses you send to. You can add each address to the BCC field. You can also set up groups in your address book. This would allow you to send to a group with only adding the group to the message. Please do not exceed 25 members per group or per individual email.

2) This would need to be done using 3rd party software and hosted elsewhere. It requires database functionality, which is not available on Homestead
