"Carbon Copies" It means other recipients of a letter (Ie. other people you will send this letter to)
Dear Frank,

Nothing

Sincerely,

This letter would be sent to Frank, and copied to Tom and Mike.

I mean when you're writing an email, usually you can see:

To: ...
Subject: ...
Cc: ...
Bcc: ...

I know Cc stands for Carbon copy. But what does Bcc stand for?

To add complication to the topic, the term "xc" is being used a lot now in business letters. It means that you are sending someone a xerox copy. "cc" is for carbon copies, whick I doubt anyone still sends true carbon copies anymore.
