how to add an email attachment on Gmail
Did you realize you could attach an email in Gmail? Here's a detailed step-by-step instruction on how to accomplish it.
Many Gmail users are familiar with all of the basic capabilities of Gmail, but there are a few lesser-known ones as well. Did you know, for example, that you may attach a Gmail email to another Gmail email as an EML file? If you think this is beneficial, we'll teach you how to attach an email in Gmail.
forward as an attachment
This is most likely the quickest way to attach an email to Gmail. Begin by checking the boxes to the left of the emails you wish to attach.
Now select Forward as attachment from the More option.
The emails you've chosen will now be converted to EML format and added to a new email window.
Using drag and drop
The prior way is fine, but what if you're already in the middle of an email and realize you need to attach another email to it? Instead, you may drag and drop those emails in.
To begin, navigate to the email you're working on and ensure it's in the bottom right-hand corner of Gmail. This is critical because you need it there but also need it out of the way so that you can retrieve the other emails. If the email you're working on takes up the entire screen, click the two diagonal arrows at the top header of the email window. This will minimize the window to the screen's corner.
Tick the boxes next to the emails you wish to attach to the new email.
Drag the emails into the new email window with your mouse or trackpad, then release them.
As previously, the emails will now display as EML files in the attachments area.
