Create a message with the same recipient list, subject and body in Outlook for WindowsThe Window’s version of Outlook has a great but hidden function that allows you to recycle a sent message and easily reuse it. You’ll be able to send it to new or different recipients, change the title and fully edit the text. This does not affect the original sent message. Here’s how:

  • Find and double-click to open the message from your SENT items
  • Look for the “Actions” drop-down menu (in the Move section of the Ribbon)
  • Choose “Resend.”
  • The entirety of your message will be copied to a brand new, draft email message.
  • Edit as you would like and hit Send!

This feature is not currently available on Outlook on the web or for the Mac version.
