We can say mail composer or mail editor to the windows mentioned in the above paragraph. Because whatever matter or message we have to send will be edited first from here.

So let’s break down all the option given in the editor. In order, you will be familiar with all the features and their uses.

We will cover all the options one by one.

Step 4: Add Cc or Bcc (as per need)- You might be able to see “Cc” and “Bcc” option just beside the “To” section.

  • Cc– Cc stands for “carbon copy”. If you want to send a carbon copy to someone else, then add second email id in Cc field. But remember, the first receiver(To field) will know that you have sent a copy to someone. The first recipient is also able to see Cc’s name and email id.
  • Bcc – Bcc stands for “blind carbon copy“. If you want to send a carbon copy to someone else, but have to hide the information of the carbon copy receiver then use this Bcc(blind carbon copy) option instead of Cc.

Step 5: Add a subject of your email which means you need to tell the recipient why you are sending an email? And what is the topic of the mail? You can do this by writing a sentence in the subject field. The receiver is only able to read subject first in the inbox folder before clicking on it.
