The best way to do send an email to multiple people is to use an undisclosed recipients feature that can be integrated into Gmail or Outlook with Mailbird.

Reduce junk email

Sending email to undisclosed recipients helps to ensure that people actually get your email and that it isn’t filtered out as chain emails to the junk folder.

Spam protection

Send personalized email 

Instead of seeing a list of emails, names can show up in place or a general title can be given such as “To the Content Department.” This allows you to send email to multiple parties with none of them knowing the other recipients.
