- Bill & PCFR,
Each week I receive a tip from CW-Weekly that I send to all our Club
members. It has all been useful so far. Copy it, file it, or delete it.
Use it whatever way you want. The following is this weeks. Enjoy!

>To Cc or not to Bcc?
>When composing an email message, you may notice that your email program
>typically asks you to fill in 4 items: To, Cc, Bcc and the Subject fields.
>Most people are familiar with the To and Subject fields. These allow you
>specify who the message is sent to and what the subject of the message is,any
>respectively. But what are the Cc and Bcc fields used for?
>Most people don't need to use these fields because they generally will add
>recipients of the message to the To field. This sends the message to allthe
>recipients and shows a listing of the people the message was sent to. TheCc
>(Carbon Copy) field works almost identically as the To field does. When athe
>recipient is added here, their email address will show at the top of the
>message as a recipient. So why use the Cc field when the To field works
>same way? It is considered good etiquette to only include those that thethis
>message was written for to be included in the To field, while the other
>recipients are added to the Cc field. When emailing friends and family,
>usually isn't an issue, but when email is utilized in a business settingthe
>Cc field is used often. For example, you have just written a report andare
>about to send it to the co-worker who needs it. You may decide to alsosend a
>copy of the report to your boss by including his email address in the Ccto
>field. This lets him know that the message was really meant for the
>co-worker, but a copy was sent to him also, just in case he needed it.
>The Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) field works differently. Any recipient added
>this line is not shown at the top of the message. So if you sent a messageto
>Aunt Sally and included your brother Bob in the Bcc field, he would alsoget a
>copy of the message without Aunt Sally knowing about it. This field isidentities
>generally used to send email to large lists of people and keep the
>of each of the recipients hidden from the others.your
>Next week, we will offer more tips for email programs.
