Carbon copies and blind carbon copies are two very useful features for sending group emails, here's how they work and how to use them.
We all know how to send an email. It's a relatively simple task that we perform practically every day, at work or at home. Yet many, certainly, do not know in depth all the functions that an e-mail box has.
With an email address, in fact, we can do more than send a simple message. We must, for example, know the risk of links and attachments in order to better protect our IT security. To manage a group conversation instead we will be able to use the CC or BCC functions that are present in the main e-mail services. These two options allow us to send the same message to several people, leaving visible or hiding the e-mail addresses of the various recipients selected by us. Sending such an email takes just a few clicks, it's an easy operation that even less tech-savvy people can do.
Send an email in CC
The CC function is an acronym for a carbon copying email. A fairly explanatory name that explains how it is an identical message sent to several people. Just as carbon sheets were used to copy the same text. To send a conversation to several people, just enter, in addition to the main recipient or recipients, some email addresses in the CC field, which is located immediately below the line dedicated to the main recipients of our email.
Send a BCC email
If we want to keep the various email addresses "copied" in our message hidden from the recipient, just use the BCC function, or blind carbon copying. Basically, a blind carbon copy. To send a message using the BCC option, just write a new email and fill in the BCC field in addition to the one dedicated to the main recipient. The row available for entering email addresses in BCC is located just above the one dedicated to the Subject.
