How to Stop 'Reply to All' in the Microsoft Outlook

It is annoying when we get people just by default clicking on the 'Reply to All' button for general issues, mailers and newsletters and spamming our mail boxes. It happens very often in every organization. The best part is people draft an email saying “Do not reply all” and send that email to all.


Microsoft has released an add-in for outlook to stop this reply all functionality (if you are not aware of this will be useful tip). The primary function of this add-in is to add a couple of buttons to the Outlook ribbon to prevent people from replying to all the recipients of your message or forwarding it. The addi-in can be downloaded from the following link

The following link has screenshots on how this add-in works
