We have talked about how to disable reply to all and forward in Outlook before but we showed you how to do this with a macro, and a macro can be a problem at times depending on what kind of restrictions you have on your computer. So if using a macro is something you do not want to do, or you can’t use them, here is an easier way to do this with an add in for Outlook called NoReplyAll, that will disable reply to all and forward in Outlook 2010.
Disable Reply to All and Forward in Outlook 2010 with NoReplyAll
First step is to download and install the plugin, you can download NoReplyAll here. Then open Outlook and click the button to compose a new email. Over to the right of the main ribbon menu on your new email you will have 3 new buttons.
These button each have a specific function. The first one will stop people form using replay all, it is the icon with the two emails and the circle and line through them. The next will stop them from replying, the little icon with the single letter with the purple arrow pointing to the left. Lastly and not least is the icon with the single letter with the blue arrow pointing to the right, that will stop the person that receives your email from forwarding your email.
When you send an email with any one of these functions added to it, you will get an Outlook reply warning.
You will want to say NO to these so you don’t keep getting prompt by them. I now it says yes in the image…
When the email opens, depending on what was disable, either the Reply, Reply All, and Forward will be grayed out on the email.
This plugin will work in Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010.
