The email technology which we know today is very old and in the last few years the style hasn’t changed quite a lot. In this blog, we are going to tell you what CC means in an email so that you can learn about it.
What does CC mean in an email?
CC also known as carbon copy is a term used in emails that allows you to send a carbon copy of the email to another recipient, the CC field helps you in keeping the recipient in the loop, now you know what CC stands for let us move ahead.
When you should use CC in an email?
Adding a recipient in the email address section is nothing different from adding a CC as in both cases the email will be sent.
The only difference it makes is that the email field is for those whose email is being directly sent, whereas recipients in the CC section are those who are receiving the email as a courtesy or are being kept in the loop.
An example of CC in an email is, like this –
From – your email address
To - firstname.lastname@example.org
If you do not want to add someone in CC you can also add that person’s email address simply in the ‘To’ section as both the receivers will still be able to see each other’s email.
We hope that you were able to know what is a CC in Gmail and for what purposes you should use this tool.
