Well BCC does that. Each receiver sees only that it was addressed to them. Just leave the actual to field blank and add your list into the BCC field only.

You say you have a huge list. Mail.app is not designed to be used as a mailing list app. It will only send 99 emails in one go so you will end up trying to manage loads of different groups, which is a nightmare.

Do what everyone else does and sign up for a mail chimp account.

The OP wants the emails personalized, so Mail.app is the wrong approach.

Mail Merge in Microsoft Office is an option if you already own that. Otherwise I'm sure you can find some free mail merge software.

Mail merge in Office is buggy and won't allow a merge within a clickable URL within an email. I am not sure what other alternatives are out there but I do know that Office does good with simple emails only.
this sig intentionally left blank
