Email is part of our daily lives and we find ourselves sending and receiving emails constantly. Occasionally, you need to reply to the sender or send the original message to another person/group.  It can sometimes be confusing if you are not sure when you should use 'reply', 'reply all', or 'forward'. In this tutorial, I will show you the differences among three kinds of reply feature in Gmail.

REPLY
When you use button 'Reply',  it means that you send your response only to the person that sent you the mail. Therefore, anyone to whom the mail was also sent or Cc'd will not receive your reply.

To reply, you just need to open your Inbox, click the email that you want to reply. The email will be open for you. If you only want to reply to the sender who sent the email to you, click the "Reply" button at the bottom and begin composing your email.

 

REPLY TO ALL


'Reply To All' sends your response to everyone the mail was sent to or were Cc'd.
To reply to all, you should open your Inbox, click the email that you want to reply. The email will be open for you. If you want to reply to all people related to the email, including both senders and recipients, click the "Reply to all" button at the bottom and begin composing your email.




Note: Anyone Bcc'd in the original mail will not receive your response. However, be very careful here, if you were Bcc'd and you reply to all, everyone will now know that you had been Bcc'd.

FORWARD AN EMAIL

When you choose "Forward", it means that you send the message to another person or group, and will include any attachments included in the original email.  This means that the person/group to whom the mail has been forwarded can see all details about the original sending.  You can remove any attachments or edit the original response before forwarding the message.

To forward, you should open your Inbox, click the email that you want to reply. The email will be open for you.Click the "Forward" button at the bottom and begin composing your email.

Above is the differences among "Reply", "Reply to all" and "Forward". Please note that to avoid mistakes when you are replying or forwarding, you should double check to make sure that the information will be sent to the proper people.
