Is it rude to BCC?

Keep things transparent by sticking with “CC” and “To.” A reply from the “Bcc” recipient would be awkward: If you “Bcc” someone, it’s always possible that they’ll reply. If this could be detrimental, avoid it. For example, don’t “Bcc” your friend when recommending them to your boss for an open position.

How do you cc someone?

Should you reply to an email when you are CC D?

Typically, the “CC” (carbon copy) is to keep you in the loop of a conversation even if you’re not directly addressed in the message. Whether or not you reply should be determined case by case. If your participation is relevant to the conversation, then a “reply all” might be in order.
