There are a few ways to send file attachments in Gmail. We’ll discuss about three of them!
Forward email as an attachment.
Gmail gives you the "out of the box" ability to redirect emails by attaching a .eml file to a new email.
Morebutton in the activity panel.
Forward as attachment.
This forwarding method is useful if you are sure that the recipient is using Gmail or another modern mail system that can correctly read an .eml file in an attachment on the go. Otherwise, the message will look extremely unreadable for the user. Most likely, by default, it will open as a text document and contain a lot of system information, and the text itself will not be formatted and will look bad.
Forward email as PDF
To make sure that the attached email is displayed correctly, you can print the message in pdf and attach it to the email.
Save as PDFoption in the new Print dialog.
Alternatively, you can click on the paper clip icon in the created email. In the new window, go to the folder where pdf was saved and select it.
Instead of saving the message as a PDF file, you can take a screenshot —the algorithm of inserting it to the email identical to the one we have described above.
