Hi there;

I have a question regarding sending mails in any client, preferably Outlook.

Scenario; i wrote a mail to abc@abc.com and he/she replies back, i "reply" back.

But then i want to write another mail to him/her before he/she replies back. When i want to click "reply", i reply to myself which i don't want to do, but there is no button for this, so i have to change the mail address of "To:" which i don't want.

So, is there a way for not replying for myself apart from deleting "To:" content but do it by clicking to "something"?

What is that "something"?

Regards.

It sounds like you're replying to the e-mail you sent, ergo, you're the recipient.  I don't know how Outlook would know you wanted to do something different.  If you reply to the last message you received from your correspondent, this shouldn't be a problem.

I want to change that generic way, at least in Outlook 2007.

There is no way to change a reply action the way you are asking.....

Assuming you are trying to "reply" to the most recent email YOU sent to this person, just use the "Forward" button button, and address the email to the person....

In 2010 if you "reply" to a sent item, it addresses the new item to yourself. If you "reply all" it addresses the item to the recipient. 2003 will address to you if you reply, reply all will address to both you and the recipient. Don't know what 2007 does, give it a try.

Hmm, so there is no setting to set as I like.

What about implementing a rule for this very occasion?

Is it possible?

Kind regards.
