Cc y cco gmail
When we are about to send an e-mail we must fill in several fields in addition to the message we want to send, of course. The two fields par excellence are the «to», which is the recipient of our email and the «subject», which is a kind of summary or title about what the email contains.
Its original meaning is «Carbon Copy», and refers to the time when correspondence was written by typewriter or by hand, and when the so-called tracing paper or carbon paper was used between the two sheets to obtain a copy of the original.
We use this section when we want to include in our mail to recipients that we want to be aware of this e-mail, even if they are not the main ones. In this case, both the addressee and the recipients of the copy will know to whom the e-mail has been sent.
If you use an e-mail manager that is not in Spanish, you can also find the CC, although not in the case of BCC, where in English you will find it under the acronym BCC, which means Blind Carbon Copy.
What does cc and cco mean in email
Yes, as you may have guessed, what I saw in the task manager also surprised me and I ended up writing this article. In August alone I had registered 13 hours dedicated to email, almost 10% of my working day!
I’m not saying it was wasted time, but it was not optimized. Many of the e-mails we deal with in the middle of another task could be read at the end of the day or at another less critical time. We attend to them with priority when they are only informative, in many cases.
I suppose that by now it is clear to you what these fields are, but I will clarify it just in case. The CC (With Copy) and CCo (With Blind Copy) fields are, together with the sender, recipient and subject, the main fields that make up the header of an e-mail.
Some (most) email clients allow the use of advanced filters on the email inbox. If we all used these 3 fields well and combined them with the moderate use of the «high priority/low priority» field, we could improve productivity enormously:
Bcc in gmail
In principle (except in some webmail providers) it is possible to send a message to all addresses as Bcc, without necessarily putting something in the To field, some fill the field with ‘Undisclosed recipients’. However, in case the mail client requires a recipient to be entered in this field, the most common recommendation is to use the sender’s own address, or a fake address, thus preserving the privacy of all recipients.
Difference between cc and cco
Emails allow messages and data to be sent to everyone within seconds. And although they are now an essential part of our daily lives, not many people know how this process really works. The truth is that in the short time it takes for a message to reach its destination, a large number of processes take place.
Every day, many people are faced with the task of writing an e-mail in a professional environment, but there are usually doubts about the best way to do it. What is the most appropriate heading? What structure should be followed when writing these messages, and can certain information be omitted from the subject line? This article explains the most important guidelines to follow….
The Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) function is available in all e-mail programs. Microsoft also offers the option to send blind carbon copy messages in Outlook, which remain hidden from the message recipients. However, you must first enable the Bcc field in Outlook. We will show you how.
