Bernard l'envoie à elle - why is this incorrect?

Just wanted to check why "Bernard l'envoie à elle" was incorrect to say Bernard sent something to her - is it that "lui" is mandatory in this case?

Bonjour Jason ! Yes, with ditransitive verbs, you need to use both indirect and direct object pronouns. Have a look at our glossary article on (di)transitive verbs: https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/glossary/transitivity/transitive-verb I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année !
