  There are three ways to keep the list of members from appearing in
  everyone's header.

  If you're planning on mailing to these people regularly, the best
  way is to create an alias in /etc/aliases (/usr/lib/aliases). That
  way, recipients can send and reply to the list as well.

  The other two ways allow you to manage the list privately, but the
  recipients cannot send to the list (unless you set something up with
  your deliver or procmail script). One is with a group list. It looks
  like this:

    To: All-members: member1, member2, member3, ..., membern;

  The recipients see this:

    To: All-members:;

  You can make this an MH alias as well.

  The second way is to use a blind carbon copy (see "How do I send
  blind carbon copies?").

  Or you could also use the undocumented Dcc field which is used like
  the Bcc field, but doesn't inject the "Blind-Carbon-Copy." Warning:
  (See "What is the Dcc header?")
