CC is also used as an abbreviation for Carbon Copy. The word comes from carbon copy in which a carbon copy is made by placing a carbon paper between two sheets and writing on the upper sheet. When you put the tip of your pen on the top sheet and press it to write something, it leaves a duplicate mark on the second sheet. You can make a greater number of carbon copies by placing more carbon paper and paper sheets between the top and bottom papers. The term is very popular on the Internet among email users. Some people put their email IDs in the CC field along with the names of the recipients. The CC field is also used to send a message to more than one recipient. The word BCC has also been used on email, BCC stands for blank carbon copy.
CC means Carbon Copy. If you are a special person, then you have to send the email and you want the remaining 3 people to know whether the email was sent, then you can enter the email address of the remaining 3 people in the CC field. By doing CC, all the four will know to whom the email has gone and the email addresses of all of them will also be visible to each other.
Friends, for your ease, let us understand this by giving an example, suppose a customer has a problem in your company, now your boss gives you the responsibility to correct that problem. But he also wants to see what you talk to the customer through email. So you can put your customer's email address in TO and keep your boss's address in CC. With this, the carbon copy of the email that you are sending to the customer will also go to your boss, but by doing CC here, your customer will also see the email address of your boss, if you want to hide the email address of your boss from the customer, then BCC can use.
