Replying to or forwarding a conversation Follow

To reply to a conversation, click the Reply button located above the message, to the right. To forward a conversation, click the Forward button in the same location:

Choosing a recipient or group of recipients

If you are creating a Reply, the original sender will be filled in as the recipient. If you are creating a Forward, no recipient will be specified and you can add one or more. You can also add “copy” and “blind copy” email recipients by clicking the buttons below:

Click the type of additional recipient you'd like to add, and then type in the email addresses.

Note: the maximum number of recipients a message can have is 500.

 

If you need to remove the original sender, click the X next to their name in the "To" field:

Formatting your reply

Outpost has a number of text formatting features for your conversation replies. All of them can be found in this toolbar, which appears at the top of the reply field:

Here are all the ways you can format your reply: 

  • Choose a font
  • Add bold, italic, or underlined text
  • Include a numbered list or bulleted list
  • Add a blockquote
  • Embed a link
  • Add an attachment

 

Resolving the conversation while replying

If the reply (or forward) you're sending will close the conversation and no further actions are needed, you can resolve the conversation as you send the reply. Click the drop-down menu next to the Send button to access a Send & Resolve button:

If you aren't ready to resolve the conversation, just click the Send button instead.

Trashing your reply before sending

If you’ve started to write a reply but then decide you’d rather not send it, click the trash can icon below your reply to delete it:

When you trash a draft, it will be moved to your Trash folder. You can leave it there, or permanently delete it later.
