How to send email - Thanalysis

Hello, readers. This article gives you information on how to send an email. Here, I recommend Gmail to send an email. Because Gmail is an easy and free tool provided by Google. Moreover, Google provides 15 GB of storage for free of cost for a lifetime. You can attach files also but it is limited to a maximum of 25 MB per email. Additionally, You can access Gmail via Web, iOS, or Android apps.

Input field for the email address

It the text field where you have to write the email address of the receiver. Hence, do write the full email address.

Email type (Cc, Bcc)

This is one of the great features that I like. Furthermore, Let me give you brief information about this feature. Cc means Carbon Copy and Bcc means Blind Carbon Copy, So let's understand this.

Carbon Copy (Cc)

Use Carbon Copy (Cc) If you planned for sending a copy for their information and want to let everyone know explicitly. In the laymen term, If you send an email to the multiple receivers then everyone from the list of receivers will be able to see to whom the email has been sent.

Blind Carbon Copy (Bcc)

Use Blind Carbon Copy (Bcc) If you don't want other recipients to see the email has been sent to that contact.

Write a subject for the email

Write a subject in the subject field. You can also leave this field blank. If you send an email without subject then Gmail will prompt you. So it's up to you.
