What does 'cc' mean? You know, for email?
You know how when you send an email to more than one person, you sometimes fill out the 'CC' and 'BCC' boxes? What do they stand for?

cc stands for carbon copy
addresses placed in this line will receive the same Email as the main addressee AND their addresses will show up in the header of the original Email once it is received
bcc stands for blind carbon copy
addresses placed in this line will receive the same Email as the main addressee BUT their addresses will not be revealed as receipients of the Email to the any of the others that are sent!!!
Hope this clears this up for you
And, Good Luck !!!
