Avoid Reply All Errors
Avoid a Reply All fiasco with these tips:
Enter the address last. Click Forward, not Reply, when answering messages. That way, the Address box of every reply starts out empty. Compose email, and then go back and enter the address(es).
Give yourself a window. In some email programs, you can set up a send delay. Your email will wait 60 seconds (or more) after you click Send, giving you a window in which to realize your error and stop the message from being sent.
- Remove the Reply All button on your end. In Outlook, you can move the button to a different spot on the toolbar so it’s harder to hit by mistake. Instructions
- Remove the Reply All button on their end. If you and your recipients are all using Microsoft Outlook, you can disable their Reply All button on messages you send. It is a way of preventing other people from making Reply All errors based on your original message. You need the free NoReplyAll add-in for Outlook.
- Undo send. The Recall command deletes a message from the recipients’ in-boxes before they’ve opened it. It only works when you and you recipients are in the same company (using the same Microsoft Exchange server), you all use Outlook, and each recipient hasn’t yet seen the message.
