Gmail Now Lets You Attach Emails…in Emails

Posted on December 10, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Google with 6 Comments

Google is rolling out a new feature for Gmail to G Suite users this week. The feature’s rollout is expected to take almost a month and come to all users by new January.

The new feature is an interesting one: it lets you attach emails, in emails.

So that means when you need to forward multiple different emails, you can simply attach them to a single email instead of having to manually forward them separately. You can right-click on emails and “Forward as attachment” to attach them to a new email, or you can simply drag-and-drop emails from your inbox to the compose window to attach an email to an email.

Google attaches emails as .eml files on Gmail, which means it will work on other email clients just fine, and you won’t need all the email clients to add support for this new feature individually.

    So if you have emails with attachments, that are attached to an email....?

    This is a useful feature on desktop e-mail applications like Outlook. I'm surprised this has just made its way to Gmail. Better late than never!

    The lack of this feature was a HUGE pain point throughout my company's transition from Office 365 to G Suite.

    @mehedi - Did you not know this feature has been around in Outlook (desktop) forever?
