Can I resend a message using Outlook?

This article concerns emails that you have previously sent and where a copy has been saved, for example in your Sent Items folder, and which you want to send again, for example to another address that you may have forgotten to CC the original message earlier.

The method is almost identical in Outlook 2013 and 2010, but note that the resend function is not available in Outlook Web App (OWA).

Locate the message in your Sent Items folder (or wherever it is saved) and do the following:

  1. Double-click the required message to open it in a new window.
  2. In the Move group on the toolbar, click on Actions and then click on Resend this message in the drop-down menu:

    Outlook 2010: resend message

  3. Replace the name or address in the To... box with the required recipient's address.
  4. Click on Send.

Please note that the resend message feature is not available in Outlook Web App (OWA).
