Proper Email Address Etiquette - Correctly Using To:, CC: & BCC: Addressing | Russ Harvey Consulting

When sending emails with long lists of recipients, it is proper etiquette to remember that everyone values their privacy, even when considering email addresses.  This is why it is important to use the BCC email addressing option when sending emails to more than one person.  What is the difference in TO, CC, and BCC?  Below is a link to a website explaining these in more detail; there is also an example posted below.  Basically the BCC option hides the addresses from view when the recipients receive the message.  Let’s say I am composing an email to several recipients.  The best way to send this email is to place my email address in the TO field and the remainder of the addresses in the BCC field.  This ensures privacy for all receiving your email… just something to think about!
