    Kuna kitu kimekuwa kikinichanganya sana wakati wa kutuma email. To:hapa ni mahali pa kujaza email add ya yule unayemwandikia. Cc: tangu zamani ni sehemu ya kujaza add ya mtumd email. Sasa ,Bcc: tunajazapo nini? kabla haujafika kwenye subject na msg. Naomba ufafanuzi ndugu zangu.

    Cc: — Carbon Copy

    "Cc" is short for "carbon copy". Those naming and designing this email feature probably had the real world counterpart to email in mind: letters. Carbon copy paper made it possible to send the same letter to two (or even more if you hit the keys really hard) different people without the onerous task of having to write or type it twice.

    The analogy works well. An email is sent to the person in the To: field, of course.

    A verbatim copy of the message is also sent to all the addresses listed in the Cc: field, though. Yes, there can be more than one email address in this field, and they all get a copy. To enter more than one address in the Cc: field, separate them with commas.

    The Shortcomings of Cc:

    When you send a message to more than one address using the Cc: field, both the original recipient and all the recipients of the carbon copies see the To: and Cc: fields including all the addresses in them.

    This means that every recipient gets to know the email addresses of all the persons that received your message. This is usually not desirable. Nobody likes their email address exposed to the public.

    Full Cc: fields also don't look all that good. They can become quite long and grow big on the screen. Lots of email addresses will overshadow little message text.

    Bcc: — Blind Carbon Copy

    The long version of "Bcc" is "blind carbon copy". If this gives you the image of an empty sheet of paper — a carbon copy without text —, that's not quite what email's Bcc: is up to.

    The Bcc: field helps you deal with the problems created by Cc:. As it is the case with Cc:, a copy of the message goes to every single email address appearing in the Bcc: field.

    The difference is that neither the Bcc: field itself nor the email addresses in it appear in any of the copies (and not in the message sent to the person in the To: field either).

    The only recipient address that will be visible to all recipients is the one in the To: field. So, to keep maximum anonymity you can put your own address in the To: field and use Bcc: exclusively to address your message.

    When you put a recipient in the BCC box, they receive the e-mail but the other people (in the To and CC boxes) don't know they have received it as it doesn't show up.

    Cc stands for carbon copy which means that whose address appears after the Cc: header would receive a copy of the message. Also, the Cc header would also appear inside the header of the received message.

    Bcc stands for blind carbon copy which is similar to that of Cc except that the Email address of the recipients specified in this field do not appear in the received message header and the recipients in the To or Cc fields will not know that a copy sent to these address.

    unapotaka kuandika e-mail kwa watu zaidi ya mmoja na wote waone nani na nani wametuwa hiyo e-mail unatumia cc (carbon copy) unapotaka kutuma e-mail kwa watu wengi na wote wasijue e-mail hiyo imepitia kwa watu wengine unatumia bcc
