TO, CC and BCC:

  To, CC, and BCC Anyone included in these three lines will receive the email. We send an email To the people who need to read it and who will hopefully respond. We send a courtesy/carbon copy (CC) of the email to people we think should be aware of the email, but we don't expect a response. And we send a blind copy (BCC) to the people we think should see the email, but they will be hidden from all other recipients. BCC is useful for sending a mass email, so when someone chooses REPLY ALL, it will be sent to the people the original email was from, to, and cc'ed. When we send reminders of our workshops, we send it FROM the training account TO the training account, CC the instructor, and BCC all the attendees. If someone replies all to let us know they are cancelling, the email only goes to the training account and the instructor.
