None. Any person at the residence can sign for and accept the letter if they are willing to take the responsibility or they can refuse the correspondence and the addressee will be required to pick it up at the local postal branch. That person cannot however open the letter unless they have the permission of the addressee.

When cc is used in an email?

cc stands for Carbon Copy. It is an old abbreviation from the days when memos were typed. If you wanted to make sure someone else got a copy of the memo, you would insert a piece of carbon paper behind it, and another sheet of paper. The typewriter would then not only type on the front page, but the impact would make the same image appear on the second sheet. Then, you would give the original to its intended recipient, and the carbon copy to someone else. In email, it's used to send a copy of the message to someone else at the same time you send the message to it's intended target. For example, you might send a memo to your coworker about their poor hygiene and cc your boss to cover your butt from a lawsuit. ;) bcc means Blind Carbon Copy. It's the same as Carbon Copy, but the email will not advise the recipient that a copy was given to someone else. On a cc, the recipient can tell that you send a copy to someone else.
