    have cc'd

    Teacher, is this sentence OK?

    So as to keep Dr. Smith's assistant in the loop, I have cc'd her in this email.

    Re: have cc'd

    It is interesting that even though carbon paper hasn't been used in decades, the abbreviation cc (for carbon copy) still exists.

    It's like the icon used to represent save in many computer programs, where many users will no longer have any idea what it depicts.

    Re: have cc'd

    I would use "cc'd her in on" or "cc'd her into".

    Not only is carbon paper rarely used, but I have always found the use of "bcc" (blind carbon copy) rather odd. It doesn't matter how many carbon copies you make, a blind person isn't going to be able to read it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: have cc'd

    Yes that is rather odd. Of course it means to send a copy without disclosing that you have done so. I am certainly old enough to remember the days of carbon paper and onionskin paper when you needed many carbons, but I cannot figure out how they did a b.c.c. back then. Remember, there were no copying machines in those ancient days.

    Re: have cc'd

    You didn't add bcc to the original or the carbon copies. Then you added it to one copy at the end.

    Re: have cc'd

    I'd write, "To keep Dr. Smith's assistant in the loop...." I don't see that "So as" adds anything.
