***NOTE: On occasion, it may become necessary or desirable to forward an e-mail to someone else as an attachment. In particular, faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to use this method for reporting spam or phishing to abuse@uwgb.edu. Doing so provides a host of useful information about where the message came from and how it got to UWGB. Below are instructions on how to forward a message as an attachment through either the desktop version of Outlook or Outlook Web Access.***


Desktop Outlook

1. Select the email you wish to forward as an attachment from the message list.
