Forward email

With Gmail's conversation feature, you can quickly forward multiple, related emails. Of course, you can also always forward just one email from a conversation.

Forward a single email from a conversation


  1. Open the specific email you want to forward. (For example, if you want to forward the second email of a 10-email conversation, open the second email.)
  2. Click the drop-down arrow beside the Reply arrow, and select Forward.  Or, at the bottom of the message, click Forward.


Important:


  • If you want recipients to see only a single email from a conversation, remember to scroll down and delete previous emails from the message field before sending.
  • If you don't want to forward attachments, deselect the box next to the attachment's file name, as seen below.


  1. Enter the email addresses to which you’re forwarding the email, and add any notes in the message field.
  2. At the bottom or top of the message, click Send.

Forward part of a conversation


  1. Open the most recent email you want to forward.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow beside the Reply arrow, and select Forward. This will forward the conversation up until that point (including all past emails in the conversation).
  3. Enter the email addresses to which you’re forwarding the email, and add any notes in the message field.
  4. At the bottom or top of the message, click Send.

Forward an entire conversation


  1. Open any email in the conversation.
  2. Select Forward all from the More drop-down. This will forward every email in the conversation.


  1. Enter the email addresses to which you’re forwarding the email, and add any notes in the message field.
  2. At the bottom or top of the message, click Send.
