How do I put more than one email address in the BCC field?
I'm trying to send an email message to two dozen people. This is a one-time announcement, so I don't want to create a group in my address book. Somebody on a Thunderbird help page told a person who wants to do the same thing I want to do that he could put all the addresses in the BCC field, separated with commas. I tried that but sometimes I get an error message that an address is faulty (it's not) and that I should try again. Other times the email gets sent but one or more people do not get the email.
Another person on the help pages said to put each address on a different line of the BCC field. Tried that but that method also gives me an error message and does not send the email. Sure wish somebody could show me what I'm doing wrong, or... ??

May be you hit a limit in terms of no. of recipients allowed by your email provider. You should check with them.
Even though it's a one-time announcement, I'd try tto creare a mailing list next.
If it's always the same recipient's email address failing, the problem may be at the recipients end.
My question was how to put more than one email address in the BCC field--commas, semi-colons or...?
In a Write window, press F9 to show the Contacts sidebar, select the contacts while holding Ctrl, then Add to Bcc: at the bottom of the sidebar. Include your own address in a To: box; the others will appear on separate Bcc lines. Check that none of the contacts have a leading or trailing space in the address, which is easily overlooked.
It's great that there's a forum for help, but I wish someone would read my original question. One of the help pages told a guy to put commas between each address in the BCC field so he wouldn't have to put every address in his address book singly or in a group. He said it worked but it doesn't work for me. Perhaps TB has made revisions since then?
You can add multiple addresses to a single line by separating them by commas, a method that is not as easy as using the sidebar, but it won't change the fact that an incorrect address makes the sending fail.
