Using at mentions in Outlook email

Did you know you can now use @ mentions in your Outlook emails? This is a great way to reference people in an email and make sure they’re added in the To field.

By default, these mentions are easy to add: Just type the @ symbol in your email and then begin typing a name or email address. Outlook will suggest people from your address book. Select what you want, and that person’s email address will also be added in the To field so they’ll receive the email.

Using mentions in Outlook email

You can edit a portion of the mention. For example, a person’s full name will be added, but you can shorten it to their first name after adding it.

These specific mentions help to assign tasks and get people’s attention. You can also search and filter your own email to Mentioned Mail to find emails that mention you specifically. To do this, click the filter option above your message list, and choose Mentioned Mail.

Searching Mentioned Mail in Outlook

Note: The Mentioned mail feature and the @ (at symbol) are only available for recipients using Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Server 2019, Exchange Online, or Outlook.com.
