There are situations that warrants attaching emails to make your things more clearer to the recipients. Attaching old emails to a conversation makes more sense than forwarding those emails seperately – say if you want to forward multiple messages related to a single topic. If you attach an email, the entirety of its conversation view (and stacking) will be preserved, making it pretty easier to follow by a third party than if you would simply forward every one of its parts, one by one.
Google has made that possible now by introducing the new feature to its Gmail services. It’s definitely an interesting one. The email service will let you attach emails to other emails – without having to download them first.
How To Attach emails On Gmail
Just drag and drop one or more emails into the Compose window and you’re all set. Alternatively, you can select one or more emails from the conversation view, and using the overflow (three-dot) menu button select “Forward as attachment”.
Sending emails as attachments also lets you write a summary message to your recipients, preparing them for what they’re about to read. The attachments can be opened directly in their mail client of choice, as every attached email becomes a file with the “.eml” extension. You can attach as many emails as you want. When you click on such an attachment, it will open in a new window.
The feature has started rolling out since yesterday and until January 21, at which point everyone is expected to have it.
