You mean BCC?

No I mean mail merge - each email is TO the person receiving it rather
than a BCC which often trips spam filters. Your email is to you, not to
someone else and BCC to you but only to you. 

Evolution is a mail user agent (MUA), not a mail management system
(mass mailer, mailing list manager, etc.). The standard interpretation
of the TO header is that each recipient gets a copy of the whole
message, including the TO header itself. I've never used an MUA that
does what you suggest (perhaps Thunderbird is an exception).
