Carbon copy - CC and Blind carbon copy - BCC
Ccstands for "carbon copy" email, meaning that you send the email to another person or other people in addition to the primary recipient or recipients. When you use cc, everyone who receives the email can see who else received it.
Bcc- Stands for “blind carbon copy” email. Just like cc, bcc is a way of sending copies of an email to other people. It's called blind carbon copy because the other recipients won't be able to see that someone else has been sent a copy of the email.
