Office 365 (Outlook 2011 Mac) - Reply To or Forward an E-Mail Message

When you reply to an email message, the sender of the original message is automatically added in the To box. Similarly, when you use Reply All, a message is created and addressed to the sender and any additional recipients of the original message. Whichever you choose, you can change the recipients in the To, Cc, and Bcc boxes (To, Cc, and Bcc boxes: A message is sent to the recipients in the To box. Recipients in the Cc (carbon copy) and Bcc (blind carbon copy) boxes also get the message; however, the names of the recipients in the Bcc box aren't visible to other recipients).

When you forward a message, the To, Cc, and Bcc boxes are empty and you must enter at least one recipient.


Reply to the sender or other recipients

You can reply to only the sender of a message, or any combination of people who appear on the To and Cc lines. You can also add new recipients.

  1. On the Home or Message tab, click Reply or Reply All.

      Note: The name of the tab depends on whether the message is selected in the message list or opened in its own window.
                To remove a name from the To and Cc lines, click the name and then press DELETE. To add a recipient, click in the To, Cc or Bcc box and enter the recipient.

   2. Compose your message.

   3. Click Send.

       Tip: Use discretion when you click Reply All, especially when there are distribution lists or many recipients on your reply. It's often better to use Reply and then add               only necessary recipients, or use Reply All, but remove unnecessary recipients and distribution lists.


Forward a message


When you forward a message, the message includes any attachments that were included with the original message.

On the Home or Message tab, in the Respond group, click Forward.

  2. Compose your message.

  3. Click Send.

 Tip:  If you want to forward two or more messages to the same recipients as one message, click one of the messages, press COMMAND, and then click each additional message. On the Home tab, click Forward. Each message is forwarded as attachments in a new message.
