How Does CC Work?

Can I add CC after sending email?

The only option: think of something new to add to the chain, then forward it to both A and B.

It could be as simple as saying that you are adding B to the CC line.

Using forward makes sure the newest email has any attachments that were on the first email..

Can CC see previous emails?

When you CC someone you’re sending them one message. If that message is a reply or forward that includes previous messages they will receive the entire contents of the message, including the older messages. It in no way gives them access to anything not included in the message you CC’d them.

Why do people CC themselves?

In this case, putting emails that indicate that something requires action (a task, something to follow up on, etc.) in their inbox is a way to make it more visible than in their sent items folder. Adding a CC to themselves immediately puts the item as unread in their inbox until they process it appropriately.

When should you cc someone?

CC someone in when you are sending a message to someone else but you’re allowing the people in the CC line to be kept in the loop and you are letting the person you emailed it to; known who else is up to speed.
