Office 365 (Outlook on the web) - Forward email as an attachment

Currently, Outlook on the web, does not have the ability to forward an email message as an attachment via a function within the interface.

There is a workaround for this. Use the steps below:
  1. Log into Outlook on the web.
  2. Click +new mail.
  3. Click the open separate window icon, open separate window icon, located at the top right corner of the message window. This will open this message as its own window within your browser.
  4. Next, organize your browser windows so that you can view both your mail folder listing and this message window.
  5. Drag the email, from your mail folder list, that you want to include in the message you are composing. It will be included as an attachment. Important: If you are currently in 'Conversation' view, all the messages within the conversation will be attached. If you only want a specific message to be attached, change your view to 'Messages' then attach. Control view settings.
  6. Enter any other relative information and click Send button.

Note: The recipient(s) will receive this message which will include the message you dragged into it as an attachment.
