    Redirect has been in the Outlook Rules Wizard for a long time.

  • You got me wrong. Suppose you received a message yesterday and you want to redirect it to another address today . How do you do it?

  • Redirect rule only works with Exchange server accounts AFAIK. I don't think that will change.

    If you want to redirect, attach the message to a new message. The recipient opens the attachment and replies to it.  Or open the message and resend. See http://www.outlook-tips.net/archives//2004/20040329.htm for details.

    There is at least 1 redirect tool - see http://www.slipstick.com/addins/mail.asp for links.

  • Is it reasonable to use an application which requires you to pay for features included in other email applications? Is it so difficult for MS to add such features to her well-known mail software?

  • Outlook has its list of features. The Bat has its list of features. Some features are common to both products. Some are different. You pay your money and you take your choice. That's the free market.

  • Yes, I would use "Forward" too but that doesn't "lie" about where the email came from.

    "Redirect" sends the email on to someone, pretending it came directly from the person who sent it to you, so that when the recipient clicks "Reply" the resulting email is addressed to the original sender and not you.

  • There is a free Redirect Messages utility that can manage this and more.

  • same problem but now annoyed

    outlook 2003 and 2007 allowed a "resend"  that achieved exactly the purpose - the purpose being, (for those who think "forward" is the same thing) to forward the message in such a manner that the receiver had all the functiionality of the original recipient - eg hit reply and the "to" address is the original sender not the person who forwarded it to you and all header information is intact.

    Microsoft even gave you a polite little "from XXX on behalf of xxx" so you knew who it came from and how it got there.

    Now why have they stuffed that up in 2010?

    2010 only appears to do the same thing EXCEPT the fuctionality is now the same as forward - hit reply and you are replying to the farwarder not the originator... !!! what FFFing use is that!!!

  • Are you using the Resend feature? When i use Resend to 'redirect' a message then reply, it goes to the correct address.

    What type of email account do you use? Some mail servers won't allow you to use other address and will change it to the account owner's address.

  • I realize this thread is a little old but I'm using Outlook 2010:

    1. Open received email
    2. Click, "File"
    3. Click, "Info"
    4. Click, "Message Resend and Recall"
    5. Click, "Resend this Message..."

  • I stumbled over this hint today (looking for a way to "redirect" in Outlook 2010), and tried it. Worked insofar as my Outlook did what it was told. But our company Exchange server refused it.

    I tried to redirect a message I received myself (from a client, i.e., outside of our company/exchange server) to our support (inside); I guess the Exchange Server can only allows this inside its scope (and there a special right must be granted)?

  • When you redirect, you are resending from the original sender. You do not have send as rights for that address (and can't be assigned them) so you can't redirect the message. You could forward it as an attachment - the person you forward to can reply to the attached message or drag it from your forward and drop it in their inbox.
