When using the helping verb have, the correct form of the past tense of the verb to send is sent.

Expert Tip! If the action is complete, it is usually better to use the more direct form, I sent you an email.

This phrase is used for several reasons:

To indicate that something was sent at some non-specific point in the past.

To indicate the action is not fully completed

To confirm that an action was done.

  • I sent you an email.
  • Sir, I have sent no emails.
  • Jay Carney or someone's office would have sent us an email saying reportable.

I have send you an email

This is not correct. Don't use this phrase.

Verb Tense: Including the auxiliary verb have, tells us the action happened in the past, so the past tense of the main verb, sent, must be used.
