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?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using direct and indirect object pronouns together (double object pronouns)"

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: I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année !
