Understanding The Cc And Bcc Field When Sending Out Emails

Since the advent of social media, many internet users have prefer sending very important messages via social networking sites. But for those who understand communication etiquettes, email still remain an wholesome way of conveying important information.

When sending emails whether for business dealings or personal endeavors, there is the Cc and Bcc fields and the option to use or ignore it depending on how many recipients is on the list.



What Cc Stands For And What It Does

Cc means carbon copy. When you add more than one email address to the Cc field, all the recipients will know that you send the email to different persons. There is no secret in it. For example, if I send an email by adding both faniran@gmail.com and orosun@gmail.com to the Cc field, Faniran will know I sent the email to Orosun and Orosun will also know I sent the same email to Faniran.


What Bcc Stands For And What It Does

Bcc means blind carbon copy. When you add two or more emails in Bcc field, none of the recipients will know that you sent the same email to others. It is secretive. For example, if I send an email to both faniran@gmail.com and orosun@gmail.com, Faniran won't know I sent the same email to Orosun and Orosun won't know either too that I sent the email to Faniran.


If you send an email by adding Faniran@gmail.com to the Cc field and Orosun@gmail.com is added to the Bcc field, Orosun will know that I sent the email too to Faniran@gmail.com but Faniran won't know I sent the email to Orosun.

Revealing other people's email addresses when sending emails to multiple recipients isn't ideal, therefore understanding how the Cc and Bcc work is very important.
