public MailAddressCollection CC { get; }
/** @property */

Property Value

A writable MailAddressCollection object.

To add a CC recipient to an e-mail message, create a MailAddress for the recipient's address and then add that object to the collection returned by the CC property.

The following code example demonstrates adding an address to the CC address collection.

public static void CreateCopyMessage(string server)
{
    MailAddress from = new MailAddress("ben@contoso.com", "Ben Miller");
    MailAddress to = new MailAddress("jane@contoso.com", "Jane Clayton");
    MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
    // message.Subject = "Using the SmtpClient class.";
    message.Subject = "Using the SmtpClient class.";
    message.Body = @"Using this feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
    // Add a carbon copy recipient.
    MailAddress copy = new MailAddress("Notification_List@contoso.com");
    message.CC.Add(copy);
    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server);
    // Include credentials if the server requires them.
    client.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;
    Console.WriteLine("Sending an e-mail message to {0} by using the SMTP host {1}.",
         to.Address, client.Host);
    client.Send(message);
}
