I personally never forward chainletters but when I warned my daughter that doing so leaves you open to all kinds of spam she poo pooed the idea, saying that she never gets any spam. I suppose if you get a chainletter your name has already gone out to several others who may forward it on anyway. Surely forwarding it yourself increases the chances of your addy ending up on a mass mailing list. What do others think?

Depends on how it was "forwarded".

Personally, If I want to send emails to multiple people without revealing anyone's email addy to anyone else I do this:

I "Fwd" it to myself, then "BCC" the other people I want to send it to. That way no one sees anyone elses email addy (they all only see mine).

That sounds like a good plan, I'll advise her to do that in future, and add it to my own bag of tricks. Lotus Notes has a delivery option to collapse "personal groups", but I think that refers to the senders address book groups. Cheers.
