Forward an e-mail as an attachment
This article shows how to forward an e-mail as an attachment in either desktop Outlook or Outlook Web Access.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
