How can I email a message to a group of people, without displaying everyone's name and email address?
The most efficient way to achieve this is with the blind carbon copy (bcc) feature. First type the email text. Then type the email addresses in the Bcc field, or click the Bcc button to select from your address book. Leave the To field blank. Recipients will see the message addressed "To: Undisclosed recipient," or the field will be blank.
TIP: If you do not see the Bcc field on a new mail message, activate it by choosing the Bcc Field option under the View menu.
Why are my quotation marks and apostrophes now question marks?
I used copy & paste to transfer my text to the online assignment form. Why are my quotation marks and apostrophes now question marks?
When you use the 'Copy and Paste' method for submitting written assignments or transferring text from your word processor to an online form, quotation marks (single or double) and apostrophes may appear as question marks in your text on the form. What may be happening is that the word processor you are using to create the text is putting in "smart" quotes or "true" quotes. As these are not true ASCII characters, they don't import correctly to the written assignment form. Here are directions for 'turning off' the smart quotes or true quotes settings in Word for Windows, Word97, WordPerfect, and Lotus Word Pro 96. You must turn off these settings BEFORE creating the document. Then complete a practice assignment submission in Module 3 of this orientation so you know the problem has been resolved. If you are using another type of word processor application then what is listed below, consult your owner's manual or the Help screen of the application for more information.

Bob is a file infecting virus. It does not become memory resident. It infects .COM files, including COMMAND.COM.
Each time a file infected with the Bob virus is executed, this virus infects all the previously uninfected .COM files in the current directory of the current drive.
It is not known what the Bob virus does besides replicate.
The Bob virus was submitted in February, 1992. Its origin, or point of isolation, are unknown. Bob is a non-resident, direct action infector of .COM programs, including COMMAND.COM. When a program infected with the Bob virus is executed, this virus will infect all the previously uninfected .COM programs located in the current directory of the current drive. Infected programs will usually have a file length increase of 718 bytes, though if the file's original length was less than 698 bytes, its length will become 1,416 bytes. The virus will be located at the beginning of the program. The file's date and time in the DOS disk directory listing will not be altered. The following text strings can be found in all Bob infected programs: "*. *.COM" "COMMAND.COM MKS_VIR.COM" "Program terminated normally" It is unknown if the Bob virus does anything besides replicate.
