If you receive a lot of emails during the day, then you are probably getting many that aren’t important, or don’t require your full attention. It can be difficult to separate these emails from one another, but one way that you might be able to sort effectively is by labeling the messages where you were included on the “To” line of the email versus where you were included on the “CC” line of the email.
The Mail app on your iPhone is able to apply these labels automatically. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and enable this setting so that you can see if it helps to improve your efficiency when viewing emails on your iPhone.
How to Show Labels for “To” and “CC” Next to Messages in Mail on an iPhone
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 10.3.3. After you enable this option the Mail app will start adding a little gray square to the left of the emails you receive. If the message was sent directly to you, then that gray box will say “To.” If you were copied on the email, then the gray box will say “CC”.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Scroll down and choose the Mail option.
Step 3: Tap the button to the right of Show To/CC Labels to enable the feature.
The change should be instantaneous, so you should now be able to open the Mail app and see these labels next to your emails.
