There are many reasons why resending an email can come in handy:

  • To resend the entire email to several people without having to recreate the recipient list
  • To recreate a successful sales email for other recipients (top tip – Right Inbox email templates are great for this)
  • To resend the email again with a few changes

Whatever the reason, email clients usually have a button that allows you to streamline the process. Frustratingly, Gmail doesn’t have this as a feature.

If you want to resend an email in Gmail, this is the way to do it.

Resending Emails Natively From Gmail

Step 1. Head over to the “Sent” emails folder in your Gmail account.

Step 2. Scroll– or search – to find the email that you need to resend.

Step 3. Open the message.

Step 4. Copy the message from the email and then click your “Compose” button. Paste the body of the email into your new “Compose” window.

Step 5. Copy and paste the subject from the other email – or write a new one.

Step 6. Add the email of the recipient.

Step 7. Click “Send.”

This seems like a lot of steps for something that is a standard feature in most email clients.

Alternative Ways to Resend Emails in Gmail

Why Gmail hasn’t added this function yet is still a mystery – it’s an ordeal to go through these steps.

So, are you wondering if there are any quick hacks you can use to resend emails in Gmail faster? Well, read on.

Using Reply

Step 1. Head over to your “Sent” folder and find the email you want to resend.

Step 2. Click “Reply.”

Step 3. Edit the body of the email to remove any content that’s no longer relevant (or to add in anything new that is).

Step 4. Remove the subject line, then add the recipient.

Step 5. Click “Send.”

Using Forward

If the email you want to resend had an attachment, you’re going to need to change the last hack a little.

Step 1. Head over to your “Sent” folder and find the email you want to resend.

Step 2. Click “Forward” instead of “Reply.”

Step 3. Then simply follow steps 3, 4, and 5 from the “Using Reply” section.

When the average office worker spends between a quarter and a half of their day immersed in emails, it’s crucial to find ways to save yourself time.

Now that you know how to resend an email in Gmail, you’ll never have to retype an email you’ve sent before again.
