When and how to use these two options
This article explains how to send an email to multiple recipients using DC Y BCC fields in your email program.
Send an email to multiple recipients using Cc and Bcc
The new email screen of each email program has a To field where you enter the recipient’s name or email address. Many outgoing email screens also display a CC field, and some display a BCC field. Whether you see them or not, the Cc and Bcc fields are available from your email provider. You may have to take an extra step to find and view them.
Once the fields appear at the top of your email, you can enter as many email addresses as you like, each separated by a comma. Your outgoing email is sent to everyone in the Cc and Bcc fields, as well as everyone in the To field.
How to locate and open Cc and Bcc fields
If you don’t see the Cc and Bcc fields, you need to look for them. Once you’ve enabled fields, they may (or may not, depending on your email program) remain in place for each new email you send.
For example: In Gmail, select DC either BCC (or both) in the upper right corner of a new message.
There is no one place to look. In Safari, fields are selected in the To see language; in Outlook, they are available in the Choice section.
What does Cc mean and how to use it?
CC is short for carbon copy. Before mail went digital, carbon paper made it possible to send the same letter to two people without writing it or writing it twice.
When an email address is entered in the Cc field, that person receives a copy of the message sent to the person in the To field. It’s useful for keeping people up to date, even if they’re not the focus of the message.
Multiple email addresses can be entered in the Cc field, and all addresses will receive a copy of the email.
Separate each email address with a comma.
Sending carbon copies by email has certain disadvantages. By using the Cc field, the original recipient and all carbon copy recipients see the email addresses to which the message was sent, and some people may object to their email address being made public.
Also, messy Cc fields don’t look good. They can be quite long and take up space on the screen. Worse yet, when someone replies to everyone on your message, all recipients in the Cc field receive the reply.
What does Bcc mean and how to use it?
bcc means hidden copy. This field hides the entered email addresses. Only the original sender of the email can see the BCC recipients. So for maximum anonymity, enter your email address in the To field and use Bcc for recipients.
People in the Bcc field also don’t receive reply emails from To or Cc recipients, which is useful during a long email conversation if you don’t want to spam everyone’s inboxes. world.
Bcc is also useful when sending a newsletter or sending a message to undisclosed recipients.
