Office Tip: Forward an Email Message as an Attachment

If you wish to send a message to email administrators, it is recommended that you forward the message as an attachment so the headers are included as well as the body.

  1. Log into Outlook on the web.
  2. Click New
  3. Click the pop-out 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 the new 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.
