    What does CC mean on an email sent list?

    I know that the "b" in BCC means blind, though I have never known what the CC means, thanks big_smile

    The notation 'cc' means 'carbon copy', a holdover from the days of typewriters, and indicates anyone you've sent a copy of the email or letter to, in addition to the addressee. The alternate notation 'bc' or 'bcc', on the other hand, means 'blind (carbon) copy', and indicates you have sent a copy to someone without the original addressee's knowledge.

    It stands for carbon copy. it is an old term and it means that the message is being sent in its entirety to another party. This way you are sending the same message to more than one person. Bcc means sending the message to multiple people, but hiding the names so no one from your addressees knows who else is going to receive that message as well. It stands for Blind Carbon Copy.

    CC means Carbon copy. BCC, written usually below it, means "Blind Carbon Copy" . Actually, if you enter email addresses in CC , then all the recipients will be able to see the email addresses of the people who were sent the email. In BCC, this doesn't happen. (That's why its a good idea to use BCC instead, because people won't be very happy with you sharing their email addresses with people they may not know.)
    Good email etiquettes include the usage of BCC over CC.

    Feel free to ask again !

    cc= carbon copy
    bcc= blind carbon copy (meaning nobody else will see who you've also sent a copy to)
