How to send and limit Bcc emails in 2021?

“Cc” means “Carbon Copy” in the (old) sense of making a copy
on a typewriter using carbon paper.

The “Bcc:” field in emails (where the “Bcc” means “Blind Carbon Copy”)
contains addresses of recipients of the message
whose addresses are not to be revealed to other recipients of the message.

The difference between Bcc and Cc lies in the privacy of the recipient.
Using the Cc feature, the email addresses in the Cc field
are visible to all the recipients of the email.
