English term or phrase: cc
Hi, can anybody help me to translate "cc" at the bottom of a letter. I believe it means something like "copy given to" but would like to hear from someone who knows for sure.
Thank you!

Cc = "Kopie/Durchschlag an"
Explanation:
cc (or c.c.) originally meant carbon copy to indicate a copy was to be sent to the name following the "cc". In German that would be "Kopie/Durchschlag an" (Langenscheidt) but my German versions of Microsoft Outlook Express and Outlook show "Cc" for the same uasge.
