  3. Write your message.
  4. Reply All: Before you decide to reply all to the message, consider whether everyone needs to see your reply, especially when the message was sent to a lot of people or distribution lists. It's often better to click Reply, and then add only the people you really want to include. Or, if you decide to reply all, remove people who don't need to see your message.

    Forward: When you forward a message, the To, Cc, and Bcc boxes are empty. Enter at least one recipient in the To box.

    Attachments: When you forward a message, the message includes any attachments that were included with the original message. Additional attachments can be added to the message. Attachments aren't included when you reply to a message, because you would be sending the same attachment the sender sent you.
