  4. 4. • Sending CC & BCC emails  Cc: stands for "carbon copy." Anyone listed in the Cc: field of a message receives a copy of that message when you send it. All other recipients of that message can see that the person you designated as a Cc: recipient received a copy of the message.  Bcc: stands for "blind carbon copy." This is similar to the Cc: feature, except that Bcc: recipients are invisible to all the other recipients of the message (including other Bcc: recipients).  For example, if you send a message To: and Bcc:, then Ali sees himself as the messages only recipient. Eman, on the other hand, is "in the know"—she can see that you sent the message To: Ali, and that you blind-copied her.  Note: To send a message, you must always specify at least one recipient in the "To:" field. If you dont, an error message appears when you attempt to send the message.Technology for Teaching English LabEng. Tahani Z. Fourah 4
