By default, the CC: address field is displayed in Apple Mail when you create a new e-mail message. CC stands for carbon copy and implies that you are sending someone a copy of an e-mail message but don’t necessarily expect a reply. There are two other hidden fields that you can add: the bcc: and the reply-to fields.
The BCC stands for blind carbon copy and allows you to send a copy of an e-mail message to someone secretly. The address the the bcc recipient is not displayed to the other recipients of the message. To display the BCC: field, create a new message and choose View ➪ Bcc Address Field from the menu.
The second hidden field is the reply-to field. What this does is sets the recipient’s e-mail program to reply to a different e-mail address than the one you sent the message from. To display the Reply-to field, create a new message and choose View ➪ Reply-To Address Field from the menu.
