How to copy all recipients from one/multiple emails in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-26

For example you received an email with multiple recipients in the To and Cc fields, and you want to copy these recipients to a new email, how could you handle it in Outlook? And what if copying these recipients to a contact group? This article will show you the solutions.

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.
