What is "Cc" in an email?

It means Carbon Copy correct? But what exactly is it's function or purpose? How is it different then just sending the email to somebody?

    It is really not that different from contacting someone by sending email directly to them. It just signifies that the message was intended to be sent to someone else directly; however another party is CC to allow the ther person to view the message.

    Ex: Your boss may send you an e-mail directly and he may also CC his boss so that he can confirm that the message was sent to you for oversight and courtesy.

    CC stands for Carbon Copy-if you type an email address in that line, that person will receive a copy of the email you are sending.

    In an email, "CC" means "carbon copy." It indicates one or more recipients of an email in addition to the direct recipients listed in the "To" line by heeru negi sankot
