We've gotten reports about some users being signed out of their accounts unexpectedly. We're investigating, but not to worry: there is no indication that this is connected to any phishing or account security threats. Please try to sign-in again at accounts.google.com and if you cannot remember your password, please use this link to recover your password. If you use 2-Step Verification, there may have been a delay in receiving your SMS code. Please try again or use backup codes.

Reply to Gmail messages

You can reply only to the person who sent you an email, or to everyone who received the email.  

Reply to messages

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. Open the message.
  3. Below the message, click Reply or Reply to all.

Make "Reply all" your default setting

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. In the "Default reply behavior" section, select Reply all.

You can still choose to reply to just one person, but "Reply to all" will be the first option.
