(2) (Carbon Copy) The field in an e-mail header that names additional recipients for the message. The term comes from carbon paper, which before word processing, was commonly used to make paper copies in a typewriter. Carbon paper is a letter-size sheet with ink on one side that is inserted between two sheets of regular paper to make a copy while typing the original. Additional copies can be made at the same time by inserting more sheets of carbon and regular paper into the same stack. See bcc, fcc and Carbon Copy.
