Forwarding the emails with the old pattern is also get old.

In case you didn’t know before, there is more than one way to pass along emails when using Gmail. 

One of the most popular ways is to simply forward the email, but sometimes you need to send more than one, and that’s where attaching emails comes in handy.

Previously, Gmail required you to download each email and then attach it as a file, and it’s as tedious and time-consuming as it sounds. 

Thankfully, that’s about to change.

Gmail has recently rolled out a new feature and a weird it may sound, it can prove to be real and useful.

The new feature of Gmail will let you sent multiple emails as attachments. The feature is like avail only for G suite and will be avail for the users soon.

This new feature can prove to be very useful as it will cut down on forwarding emails to the same person or persons.

Whenever there is any information that needs to be communicated between a team or even otherwise.

How to Send Emails as Attachment

When the feature arrives, you’ll notice a new “Forward as attachment” option in the three-dot menu. 

Click on that to send an email attachment. Now, go to the “To” field, add recipients’ email IDs. 

You also have the option to send attachments to people who’re BCCed or CCed.

Draft your email with the message and subject line.

Click “Send.”

Note that the attached email is converted into a .eml file. When users click on a .eml file, it opens in a new window.

But if you are sending multiple emails, you can select the emails that you want to send.

Hit “Send.”
