How To BCC

Someone wanted me to explain how bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) works. At this point in life you would think everyone know everything about emails since we use them all the time but that is not the case. I will briefly go over how exactly we come about bcc. Pay attention!.

The software program you use to send, receive, and manage electronic messages is called an e-mail client. To send a message, you enter information similar to the heading of a typical memo.


To: contains the e-mail address of the recipient. This is a mandatory entry.

CC:, short for Carbon Copy, contains the e-mail addresses for people other than the primary recipients. This is optional.

BCC:, short for Blind Carbon Copy, contains the e-mail addresses of other recipients who receive copies, but their names and addresses are hidden from all other recipients. This is optional.

Subject: contains the main topic of the message. Keep this brief. Recipients see this in their summary of incoming messages.

Attachment contains the names of files that you may be sending, for example, a Word document or a photo.

Body contains the message itself, which can be of any length.

Here is how to interpret the parts of an e-mail address:

fierce –The user name of the e-mail account holder is a unique, assigned name that can be a real name, initials, a nickname, or a descriptive word such as “information.”

@ –The axon sign is required in all Internet e-mail addresses. It allows the e-mail software to distinguish between the user name and the domain name. –The domain name identifies the company, organization or e-mail service of the account holder.
