I had sent you an email

This phrase is correct. 'Sent' is the past participle form of the verb 'send' and is used with auxiliary verbs like 'had.'

This phrase is used to indicate that the action of sending the email was completed in the past before another past action.

Examples:

  • I had sent you an email before you called me.
  • She had sent an email to the client last week.
  • They had sent the report to the manager for review.
  • He had sent a reminder to the team members.
  • We had sent out invitations for the event.

I had send you an email

This phrase is incorrect. 'Send' is the base form of the verb and cannot be used with auxiliary verbs like 'had.'


Alternatives:

  • I had sent you an email
  • I sent you an email
  • I have sent you an email
  • I would send you an email
  • I will send you an email
The correct phrase is 'I had sent you an email.' 'Sent' is the past participle form of the verb 'send' and is used with auxiliary verbs like 'had.' 'Send' is the base form of the verb and is not correct in this context.
