blind carbon copy
Like carbon copy (cc), this e-mail option lets you send the same message to many different addresses. The difference is that when you put a recipient's e-mail address in the bcc field, the cc'd recipients cannot see the bcc'd e-mail addresses and don't know that someone else received it. For example, if you want to send a letter to your boss but you also want your girlfriend to read it, you can put her e-mail address in the bcc field. That way, both she and your boss will receive the message, but your boss won't know she received it also.
