In Outlook for the web, it's simple to save time when you create and reply to messages by using @mentions, Suggested replies, sharing files, and even using the Like button instead of writing a response.

Create and send email

  1. Select New message.

  2. Add recipients and a subject.

  3. Type your message. @mentioning a colleague is a great way to get their attention.

  4. If you want to share a file, select Attach and choose a Suggested attachment. You can also Browse this computer or Browse cloud locations to find the file you want to attach.

  5. Select Send.

Respond to email

Here are a few different ways to respond to email that can save you time:

  • Select Reply, Reply All, or Forward and type your message like usual.

  • Select the Like button instead of writing a response.

  • Use a Suggested reply to save time and quickly respond.
