    Cool after he sent

    Hello!

    Is the use of the past simple correct here, please?

    "He usually replies to my emails just after I sent them".

    If we used the present perfect, it would have a "future" meaning wouldn't it?

    e.g. "He will reply to your email just after you've sent it". Am I right?


    Thank you
    Will

    It's OK, but I would say "He will reply to your email just after you send it" in most situations.
