Ooops - did we lose the 'Resend' option for sent messages?
Can someone from Microsoft please tell us all when this will be fixed? I can't use the new version without this feature but I like some of the new features.

This is essential for business use. The friendly and also the unfriendly reminder using this feature and it remains in the same thread.
in the old outlook you could resend an old email by right clicking and using the drop down screen. with the new outlook format, there is no option for this, you have to open the email completely and then resend by using the menu up the top, however the email then closes and nothing happens

The option "resend" is essential for business
It s the faster way to remind someone of something in 2 clicks
Before you could go into your "Sent" folder, and right click an email to resend. That function is removed from the new design.

Frequently used, please bring it back.

Ridiculous, I use this feature daily for template emails that I send to suppliers. I will need to find an alternative product going forward
Adam Miller commented
Please bring back the resend feature as I use often
Robert Beadle commented
The option to resend an email has been removed from the right click. Please add this back.

I use this feature about 50 times a day for social media leads. Why would you release Outlook without this critical feature? Very strange and frustrating.
Adam Jacobi commented
This is such a huge factor in my productivity. Why in the world is this feature not a standard feature port into the new version???
It seems new outlook is missing the re-send feature. This is one of the most important email features for me after many emails I send are based on existing / the last mails I composed. Its really cruical to make an email client usefull.

I use this feature regularly. I would really like it back.
Ditto everything said. This is a necessary feature! Please fix.
Yes, this needs to be returned. It is a huge time saver. Having to copy and paste text and add a large number of addressees into a new message makes no sense when the Resendoption has existed in Outlook for Mac for years.

I used this a lot. please bring it back. Currently it crashes outlook
I used this feature weekly to resend updates to two different large groups. Without, I'll need to hit reply all, copy the addresses, then copy the content text, and update.
Much easier to hit resent, and then change the content text as needed
I use the resend feature frequently.
Why do newly developed apps always loose features?
Bill Bates commented
All modern email clients should have a resend feature. New versions should not lose important functionality.
Jeff Savage commented
It is greyed out on mine and I really want it back. If I actually open a sent message in a separate window resend is there not greyed out but as soon as you click on it the message and window close. Please bring this back, it is (was) a frequently used function.
