Gmail now lets you send email as an attachment

Google has introduced a new solution to let users send emails in the Gmail. You no longer have to forward the email or download it and then attach. Google is allowing users to attach emails to other emails with click of a button.

The new Gmail feature allows users to attach emails to a new email without having to download or copy them. Many Gmail users prefer attaching emails over forwarding them. Google has identified this use case and created solution for these users. Let’s say you need to send multiple emails from your inbox to the team so they can get started on a project, the only way for you is download the individual email and attach them. With the new feature, you would be able to attach multiple emails without having to download them.

In a blog post announcement, Google writes, “We’ve heard from you that there are situations where attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. With this new functionality, you can do exactly that. Sending emails as attachments allows you to write a summary email message to your recipients, and attach the set of supporting emails that recipients can directly open in their mail client.”

It is also possible to select the emails you want to forward. You can multi-select from the overflow menu and then choose “Forward as attachment”. There is no need to create a brand new thread if you are replying to an email. You can open the draft window and then drag and drop emails that you wish to forward. The feature will be rolled out gradually. G Suite users will first receive the feature before others.
