Google's email service Gmail has recently rolled-out a new feature and as weird it may sound, it can prove to be really useful. The new feature will essentially let you send multiple emails as attachments. The feature is initially rolling out to G Suite users and is likely to be available to all 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. "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 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," Google posted on their blog.
How to send emails as attachment:
Once the feature is available, there will be “Forward as attachment" option in the overflow menu. Click on that to send email attachment and attach as ,any emails a you want to the primary mail. You may also drag and drop them all at once into an open draft window.
Now, go to “To" field, add recipients email IDs.
Draft your email with message and subject line.
How to reply with an attached email:
Open an email and click on “Reply."
Next, click on the pop out icon which appears at the top right.
Select the email you want to attach with your reply. Drag the mail into your message.
Google says the "feature is rolling out gradually," so it may take some time to reach you.
