cc

cc stands for carbon copy, like those old fashioned purple sheets we used to put in between pages so that copies were made. Cc is generally used in email and every email address you place in the cc field gets a copy of the email AND everyone sees the email addresses that are listed in the cc field. Put someone’s email address in the cc field when you think they may be interested in the information you are sending, the same as “fyi” or for your information.
