Then the emails can be forwarded to recipients in the "To", "Cc", or "Bcc" fields. Another method to insert emails in a new thread to select the emails from the Gmail inbox and then choose to "Forward as attachment" from the three-dot menu.

The new functionality in Gmail lets you write an explanation introducing the subject and attach a bunch of emails that recipients can open in their email client.

If you've used traditional email clients such as Outlook, attaching an email to another email is as easy as drag and drop.

However, in this case, you will have to hit the "pop out reply" button so that the compose window pops out and you can drag and drop emails into it, just like how it works for a fresh draft email.

No casualties or damages were reported following the incident in which at least five rockets hit the Ain al-Assad military base. Security sources said they belong to the Counter-Terrorism Service, an elite unit created and trained by United States forces.

So that means when you need to forward multiple different emails, you can simply attach them to a single email instead of having to manually forward them separately.

Google has announced that they are rolling out an update to Gmail on the Web to support sending multiple emails as attachments, yes the same feature email has had since, forever. The feature's rollout is expected to take nearly a month and come to all users by new January.

Alternatively, Gmail users can send an email as an attachment by right-clicking on a message and dragging and dropping the file into the body of a message.

This will convert the attached emails into.eml files. You can attach as many emails as you want. Once one of these are clicked, the attached email will open in a new window.
