    Simple question. Cortana on W8.1 phone( UK) - she will send a text but not an email. Is this normal?
    What about on W10 phone?

    There are plans to allow Windows 10 on mobile to send emails. I don't know if that feature has been implemented in the preview version yet. I do know Cortana on my Windows 10 laptop will send emails, and I love the feature.

    Windows Phone 8.1 does not support this feature.

    It's on Windows 10 Desktop, but I'd have to train myself to use it smoothly...

    OK... So I just sent my first email via Cortana since you asked. It was super easy if you are familiar with "Hey Cortana."


    Me: Hey Cortana, send an email

    Cortana: OK, who do you want to send it to?

    Me: <wife's name redacted>

    Cortana: What is the subject?

    Me: Test

    Cortana: What is the message?

    Me: Testing to see if Cortana will send email via voice

    Cortana: Here's your email. Shall I send it?

    Me: Yes

    The message was sent...


    No set up I just jumped in and it worked. My contacts are in Outlook. I guess it would read any Contacts in your Mail app. Or you could say an address, but that sounds iffy. Remember the limits of Hey Cortana and pausing too long making her go on to the next stage in the task. Obviously this is for short notes to contacts with actual human names...

    I just looked and it is in my Outlook sent folder.


    Alternately, you can say "Hey Cortana, send an email" and then take over by filling in the fields manually in the Cortana Box if the task is larger than the voice command will reasonably accomplish.

    Thanks for testing this for me.......I guess I need to figure out how to point Cortana in the right direction. I get a message back "I can help you send an email: You just need to set up an account."

    It looks like it is Outlook dependent. I can't get it to see my Yahoo contacts.

    Is your Cortana all set up?

    Open Cortana > Notebook > Settings > Manage what Cortana knows about me in the cloud
