Outlook 2003: reply to all doesn't include self


J

jpnewport

I just installed Outlook 2003 (love it so far) but when I
reply to all, my own address doesn't appear in the TO:,
CC: or BC: fields -- and I want it to. In my old Outlook
(2000 version) my address was included automatically
(assuming it was in the original message I'm replying to)
and in installing Outlook 2003 I migrated all my
settings, so I don't know why it changed. More
perplexingly, I can't figure out how to accomplish this.

In sum: When I receive a multi-recipient email and reply
to all, how do I rig Outlook 2003 so that my own address
is automatically included in (or, stated another way,
isn't automatically deleted from) the reply-to-all
recipient list?

you'll need to enter it back - it was a bug that it was included in previous
versions (outlook didn't know who 'you' were and left all addresses on it)

Thanks for replying.

So am I correct in assuming that for each reply-to-all
message I now send, I have to manually go up to the CC:
line and enter my own address? (Assuming I want to
receive a copy of what I send, which I do -- and not just
in the "sent items" folder.)

I vaguely recall seeing a "include self when replying"
option (or something like that) related to some Microsoft
product or other in the past. Does this ring a bell with
you?

Thanks again!

To whomever might be interested, I figured out an obvious
work-around -- writing a rule to automatically CC myself.
