The Full form of BCC is Blind Carbon Copy. It is commonly abbreviated as Bcc. It allows the sender of an e-mail or message to hide the person entered in the Bcc field from the other recipients. Originally, this concept applied to paper correspondence and now also applies to email conversations also. In those circumstances, the typist who creates a paper correspondence must ensure that the number of recipients of such a document do not see the names of other recipients. To do this, the typist can add the names to each copy in a second step and without carbon paper, and then copy circulation.
With the context of an email, recipients of a mail are specified using addresses in any of the 3 fields as: To- Primary recipients, to Cc- Carbon copy to secondary recipients—other interested parties, and to Bcc- Blind carbon copy to tertiary recipients who receive the message. The primary and secondary recipients of the mail cannot see the tertiary recipients. Depending on the software of email, the tertiary recipients may only see the email addresses of all primary and secondary recipients, and their own email address in Bcc, or but will not see other tertiary recipients.
