How do I stop Outlook from adding myself to reply all?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To stop Outlook from adding yourself to the “Reply All” list, you can follow these steps:

1. Check your Contacts list: First, ensure that your own email address is not added as a contact in Outlook. To do this, open Outlook and go to the Contacts section. Look for your own email address in the list of contacts. If it is there, select it and click on the “Delete” or “Remove” option to remove it from your contacts. This will prevent Outlook from automatically adding your email address when you reply to an email.

2. Remove email address from auto-complete: Outlook has an auto-complete feature that suggests email addresses as you type. If your own email address is still appearing in the auto-complete suggestions, you need to remove it. Start a new email and begin typing your own email address or name in the recipient field. When the auto-complete suggestion for your email address appears, move your cursor over it and click on the “x” icon that appears next to it. This will remove your email address from the auto-complete list.

3. Manually type your email address: Instead of relying on auto-complete, make it a habit to manually type your email address whenever you send an email. By typing it out each time, you can ensure that Outlook doesn’t add your own email address to the “Reply All” list.

It’s important to note that these steps may vary slightly depending on the version of Outlook you are using. However, the basic concept remains the same. By removing your email address from your contacts and auto-complete, and manually typing it when necessary, you can prevent Outlook from adding yourself to the “Reply All” list.

I hope these steps help you in stopping Outlook from adding yourself to the “Reply All” list. If you have any further questions or need clarification, feel free to ask.
