Google introduces a new feature that allows Gmail users to attach other emails to a new email without downloading them first. In short, you now can send other emails as an attachment in Gmail. This new email attachment feature comes very handy when a user needs to send multiple emails from the inbox to the other user.
The company made this feature in response to the customer feedback, “attaching emails makes more sense than forwarding separate emails, like wanting to forward multiple messages related to a single topic.” The company also mentioned:
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.
There are two ways in which feature could be used — first, after selecting the emails which you want to send, click on the three dots main overflow menu at the top and select “Forward as an attachment,” — second you can drag-and-drop the selected emails into the draft window. And once the emails are attached, they will be shown as .eml files that will open in a new window when clicked. However, there is no limit on how many emails or messages can be attached.
The feature is rolling out gradually, so it may take time to reach all the users and will be available to all G Suite editions.
