Teams: Sending an Email to Teams


This article explains how to send an email in Microsoft Teams using a channel email address.


If you want to send an email to a channel in Teams, use the channel email address. Once an email is part of a channel, anyone can reply to it to start a conversation.

Send an email to a channel

Go to the channel name and click the three dots button for More options > Get email address.

FYI, this feature needs to be enabled by your IT admin.

Reply to an email in a channel

When you reply to an email message in a thread, it creates a conversation about the email within Teams. However, this does not send an email reply to the original sender. Any comments or conversations you have about the email in a channel aren't visible outside of Teams.

View the original email

Sometimes, emails that get sent to a channel are too large to view in the conversation. To see an email in its original format, click View original email under the email in the conversation.

Troubleshoot email failures

There are a few reasons why sending an email to a channel can fail:

  • The channel settings restrict who can send email.

  • The email contains more than 50 inline images.

  • The email has more than 20 file attachments.

  • The email has an attachment that's more than 10 MB.

  • The SharePoint folder associated with the channel has been deleted or renamed.
