Whenever you send an email to more than one person., do NOT use the To: or Cc: boxes for adding more email addresses. You may have to put at least one address in the To: box (I usually send it to myself) but wherever possible always use he BCC: (blind carbon copy) box for listing ALL the email addresses. This way the people you send to will only see their own email address.
Every time you forward an email there is information left from the people who received the message before you did, namely their email addresses and names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds and all it takes is for one person to get a virus and his computer can then send that virus to every email that has come across his computer. Also someone can use those addresses to send junk mail and spam.
Try the following if you have not done it before.
When you forward an email, click the Forward button first and then you will have full editing facilities. Now highlight and DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top), and any other content you do not need to forward.
Alternatively you can highlight the content you wish to forward and cut and paste this into a New Message.
Either way avoids recipients from having to read through replies to replies to replies etc.
