Email Returned? Need to send the same message to multiple people?

So now you have to go to your Sent mailbox, open the message, copy the message body into a new message, then copy the Subject into the subject line, then you have to use a different address--Right?

Actually, you are making it too hard. Instead, locate the message in your Sent mail, highlight it, and then go to the Message menu and choose the Send Again command:




Instead of a blank message, you have the old one, looking just as it did before you pressed the Send button. Delete the bad address and enter the new one--and send it on its way!

This command can also be used to send the same message to multiple people without having to resort to blind carbon copies (these are sometimes intercepted as SPAM) or adding everyone’s email address to a message and suffering the wrath of friends and family who are upset that you gave unknown people their email address.

I frequently use this method when I am working on projects for my user group. It takes just a second to send the same message to multiple people.

If you send your holiday message via email, this method will make your message “look” more personal.

Happy Holiday Preparations!
