Google’s Gmail is getting an upgrade that will allow users to attach emails to a new email without forwarding or downloading them first. Google calls this “You can attach emails to other emails in Gmail”.
This option has been available on Microsoft outlook for some time and seems right for Gmail to introduce it in their system.
When emails are sent as an attachment:
- The attached email becomes a .eml file.
- You can attach as many emails as you’d like.
- When you click on a .eml email attachment, it will open in a new window.
Why Gmail Introduced this Option.
” 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 allow 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.”
