What does BCC stand for?

Blind carbon copy

BCC means blind carbon copy. It is an email field that allows a message to be sent to other recipients without showing their email addresses.

The BCC field is similar to the CC field, but when BCC is used, the e-mail addresses are hidden. The BCC field appears below the CC field when composing a new message.


Please BCC me on that email because I don't want my email address to get out.
