Sending E-mails to many people w/ the use of BCC

A very very very commonly asked question and exam question is that use and acronyms for BCC and CC.

BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy - Used so no one can see who (in Bcc) you sent the e-mail to

CC stands for Carbon Copy - Hmm, Not really sure, maybe you in the past couldn't be able to use "," in the "To:" section to add more recipients.?? Can someone please confirm for me?

Anyway, If your e-mail client/program/website doesn't let you send an e-mail with no one in the To: section, just add your own e-mail address in the To: and then all recipients in the Bcc field. This will allow you to send an E-mail to everyone without anyone knowing who else you sent the e-mail too.
I find this should be used for when sending e-mails to different groups of friends to help protect your high school friend's e-mail addresses from being visible to your relatives and vice versa for example. Especially if you send chain mail!

If your using Thunderbird, just select the To: (which is a drop down) and select Bcc to not even need to Add a To: in the e-mail. Your recipient(s) will only see a From: field with your e-mail and nothing else.
