Have you ever received a forwarded message and wanted to respond directly to the original sender instead of the person who forwarded it to you? It can be a bit tricky to figure out how to do that, but fear not! This article will guide you through the process step-by-step.
First, open the forwarded message and find the original sender’s email address. In Gmail or Google Workplace, you can typically find this by scrolling down and clicking the three dots to see the rest of the message. Once you’ve found the email address, copy it by highlighting the entire address and pressing “ctrl c” on your keyboard.
Next, click on the “reply” button in the message. You’ll notice that the reply will automatically be addressed to the person who forwarded the message, not the original sender. To change this, click on the recipient box and paste the original sender’s email address that you just copied. Then, remove the name of the person who forwarded the message.
Now you’re ready to compose your message to the original sender and hit send. It’s a pretty easy process once you get the hang of it!
While this method may seem a bit more cumbersome than just hitting “reply,” it’s important to be able to communicate directly with the person who sent the original message. This can be especially important in business settings where you may need to discuss confidential information or provide a timely response.
So next time you receive a forwarded message and want to reply to the original sender, just remember these simple steps. Happy emailing!
