When someone is CC can they see previous emails?

CC vs. BCC. When you CC people on an email, the CC list is visible to all other recipients. BCC stands for “blind carbon copy.” Unlike with CC, no one but the sender can see the list of BCC recipients.
What happens if someone replies to a BCC?
The whole point of BCC is that there is no record of who got BCC’d in any of the copies of the email that are delivered. Otherwise, you’d use CC. So if you reply to a BCC, your mailer has no idea who, if anyone, was BCC’d on that email, so it can’t send them copies.
