Composing an email in Gmail

When you are composing an email, there are a few text fields for you to fill in like the “To:”, “CC:” and “BCC:”. Have you ever wondered what are they?

The first field “To:” is obvious for inputting of the actual recipient’s email address. The second one “CC:” means Carbon Copy, which is for people who is involved or should be aware of the contents of the email. The last one “BCC:” stands for Blind Carbon Copy, which is for secret addressee who will not be known to the rest.
