Copy all recipients from one email to a new one

Normally we can copy the recipients from the To or Cc fields manually to a new email. However, this method will introduce a trick on batch copying all recipients from both To and Cc fields of an email to a new one in Outlook.

1. Select the email whose recipients you will copy, and click Home > Reply All.

2. Now all recipients are copied to corresponding To and Cc fields in the replying message. Please clear the subject and message content, and then you will get a new email with copied recipients. See screenshot:

Note: This method add the specified email’s sender to the To field of the new email, and remove yourself from the To or Cc field.
