Carbon copy (cc) on a business letter

When putting a cc on a letter, do you change the heading on the letter to match the person you are copying?

(ie... Dear John,

cc: Mary Smith.

Would you send a copy of the letter to Mary Smith with the letter changed to "Dear Mary,"
I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for your help.

Hi darlin’
CC is used a lot. I’ve seen too many of them and I’ve been workin’ a very short time. The carbon copy notification tells everyone that they’re reading another person’s private mail. If you change the salutation, you’ll only confuse matters. So, if the letter is addressed to Mr. Jones, do not alter the salutation. Mr. Smith will understand that he is reading something directed to Mr. Jones.
Happy days.

So, the proper form of cc'ing someone, is just to put the cc: name of person, and that is it. Phew. I was complicating this situation to no end
