What is Email?

Email is short for 'electronic mail'. An email can be sent to a single email address or to multiple addresses.

Sending an email

When composing a new email, the recipient’s email address can be entered into one of three text fields:

  • To – enter it here if this email is directly addressed to this person.
  • Carbon copy (Cc) – enter it here if the email needs to be seen by this person but is not addressed to them.
  • Blind carbon copy (Bcc) – enter it here to prevent other recipients knowing you’ve sent it to this person.
