    Send you / send to you

    Hello,

    The pictures I have sent you

    The pictures I have sent to you


    Is it compulsory to put TO before the indirect object in this particular case - when the direct object has already been mentioned beforehand - ?


    Thank you for your help.

    In fact, to is more commonly omitted.
