I already sent vs I already send

Expert tip! Only use the word already when you are referring to a specific time, an event that is fully completed, or to indicate surprise at the passage of time. Many times it is redundant to say you have already done something; saying it is done is enough, so it is often better to simply omit the word.

I already sent

This is correct

This phrase is used to indicate something was sent in the past. The word already is used here to emphasize the action is completed and so it is too late for any changes.
