Redirect Email Instead Of Forwarding

Forwarding email is a quick way to send along an email you received to someone else. But it also means that when that person responds, the response will come to you, not the original sender. You can use Mac Mail's Redirect command to send the message to someone else and retain the sender in the From field so that replies will skip you and go directly back to the original sender. This is useful when you need to send along a question to someone else to answer it.

    I don’t see redirect in iCloud webmail. Is there a way to redirect there?

    Arlan: I guess it isn’t a feature there. Maybe request it.

    Hmmm, don’t see an option for adding the “redirect” icon to my email toolbar. Am I missing it?

    John: In Mail’s Customize Toolbar interface, I see it in High Sierra. Second row of buttons, second from the left next to Copy.

    Gary:
    If the email you received and want to “redirect” to a different person, contains an attachment, will the “redirect” command, strip out the attachment or will the attachment also be forwarded on. I am looking for a mail “rule” that will forward/redirect emails with attachments without stripping out the attachment.

    edward: I would think it would include the attachment. But that is easy to test. Try it and report back.

    Is there a way to redirect emails from the mail program on the iPhone?

    1 year ago

    Christol: This doesn’t appear to be a feature of the iOS Mail app. Perhaps they’ll add it in the future.

    I love the redirect function, but is it also possible in gmail?

    Sybille: You can use any type of email account in Mac Mail, including Gmail. So yes, if you have a Gmail account and use the Mac Mail app, then you can certainly do this.
