Story Behind CC & BCC

29 Nov

All we people see these fields while sending mail Right?It made me to think what is the difference between CC and BCC?..Ya…”Cc” is short for “carbon copy”.It is possible to send the same letter to two different people without having to write or type it twice using cc.In this every recipient gets to know the email addresses of all the persons that received the message. This is usually not desirable. Nobody likes their email address exposed to the public.Next,BCC-Blind Carbon Copy.In this neither field itself nor the email addresses in it appear in any of the copies.The only recipient address visible to all recipients is the one in the “To:” field. So, to keep maximum anonymity we can put our own address in the “To:” field and use “Bcc:” exclusively to address the message:):)
