Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) offers a versatile set of productivity tools, including Gmail for email management. If you're using Gmail and need to forward an email as an attachment to share with colleagues or partners, you're in the right place. This guide will walk you through the steps to forward an email as an attachment in Google Workspace.
Step 1: Sign In to Your Google Workspace Account
Start by opening your web browser and signing in to your Google Workspace account. Navigate to Gmail.
Step 2: Select the Email to Forward
In your Gmail inbox or the folder where the email you want to forward as an attachment is located, locate the email message you want to forward and select it by clicking the checkbox next to the message.
Step 3: Access the "More" Menu
With the email selected, look for the "More" menu represented by three vertical dots in the Gmail toolbar, typically located above your inbox.
Note: It's possible to forward multiple emails at one time with this method. If that is not your intent, please make sure only one message is selected before you click "Forward as attachment"
Step 4: Choose "Forward as Attachment"
From the "More" menu, select the "Forward as attachment" option. This action tells Gmail to create a new email with the selected email attached as an .eml file.
Step 5: Customize the Forwarded Email
A new email composition window will appear with the selected email attached as an attachment. Here's how you can customize the forwarded email:
- Address the email to the recipient(s).
- Add a clear and informative subject line.
- Include any necessary information or context in the body of the email.
Step 6: Send the Forwarded Email
Review the email you've composed to ensure accuracy and completeness. When you're satisfied, click the "Send" button to forward the email as an attachment to the recipient(s).
Please note that the exact steps and options may vary slightly depending on your specific Google Workspace configuration and whether you are using the web version or the mobile app. However, the general steps outlined here should work for most Google Workspace setups.
