How to Use Blind Carbon Copy

by Barbara J. Feldman on October 21, 2008

Do you know when and how to use the Blind Carbon Copy feature of your email client? When addressing an email to send to a single recipient, it’s obvious that their address goes in the TO field and yours in the FROM field. But when sending a message to a large list (whether it’s an invitation to a hula party or a business memo), email etiquette suggests that you hide that long list of email addresses. This is when you use BCC for your list of recipients, and put your own email address in both the TO and FROM fields. To learn more about CC and BCC read Russ Harvey’s Proper Email Etiquette.
