Can someone who is BCC D Reply All?

The first and most visible problem with the blind carbon copy is when someone who was BCC'd hits reply all. Now the people who were on the email (in the TO or CC lines) are alerted to the fact that they were not the only recipients. I've seen this backfire more times than I can tell you.

What happens when you BCC?

Cc means carbon copy and Bcc means blind carbon copy. For emailing, you use Cc when you want to copy others publicly, and Bcc when you want to do it privately. Any recipients on the Bcc line of an email are not visible to others on the email.
  • Is BCC really hidden?

    Normally when you send an email, recipients can see who else received the email because they can see the To and CC fields. But they cannot see the BCC field which means that if you BCC someone on an email, the other people who received the same email will not know.
  • Can the CC see the BCC?

    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.
  • What is a Bcc field?

    With email, recipients of a message are specified using addresses in any of these three fields: To: Primary recipients. Cc: Carbon copy to secondary recipients—other interested parties. Bcc: Blind carbon copy to tertiary recipients who receive the message.

Why would you want to use a BCC?

Bcc stands for “blind carbon copy,” and is a way of sending emails to multiple people without them knowing who else is getting the email. Any email addresses in the Bcc field will be invisible to everyone else on the email. In other words, it's like cc, but for spies.
  • Why would you use CC in an email?

    The Cc: field is generally used to keep people in the loop (FYI) with no expectation of a reply being required. Using these fields to make someone feel less important or to make a point by putting them in the Cc: field when it would make sense to include them in the To: field is not right.

  • What is an undisclosed recipient?

    BCC – Undisclosed Recipients. The BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy. That means no one can see who the email is going to. When you send the message, it will be sent to all of the people in your BCC. You should receive the same email in your inbox as well.

Can you find out if someone was BCC on an email?

As you know, recipients can't tell who you included in the BCC field, or even if you used the BCC field at all. But that doesn't mean you can't. To see who you BCC'd in a previous email, just open the Sent mail folder and open the message. You'll see the BCC field preserved for future reference.
  • What is a CC on an email?

    Bcc. "Cc" stands for "Carbon Copy," while "Bcc" stands for "Blind Carbon Copy." A carbon copy, or "Cc'd" message is an e-mail that is copied to one or more recipients. Both the main recipient (whose address is in the "To:" field) and the Cc'd recipients can see all the addresses the message was sent to.
  • What is BCC vs CC?
