How can we improve Airmail?

Forward as attachment

We REALLY need forward email as attachment. This is a sorely missing feature that every other email client seems to have including PostBox.

    This option is required for some 'spam learning technique's', can you please investigate this as an option.

    Abandon this product. It's been years and the developers are still unable to implement this functionality. Also, the MIME parse on OS X doesn't operate the same as iOS and displays malformed messages. Run away!

    I have the same problem with forwarding e-mails in Airmail that have an attachment. People will say they received my e-mail but not the attachment.

    I was given these instructions by the support team today to access the forward as attachment function:

    You can send the emails as PDF in attachments. Please right click on the message >> select print >> select save as PDF , then you can attach this saved PDF.

    This isn't a forward as attachment function. It's a time-consuming workaround as it means having to print, save, compose, send, and then delete the PDF version saved on the computer. A send as attachment is a simple three step process - click send as attachment, enter email address, hit send. Done.

    Yes, we need this. I frequently have to forward mail as attachment, but am always running into the problem that it's part of a conversation and there is no way I can find to forward just one mail from a conversation. I have to keep resorting to Apple Mail to do this task. Just need a forward as attachment option on the forward button.

    How can I forward an opened email directly as an attachment like in Apple Mail? I don't see the feature?!

    This missing feature prevents me from using Airmail for some of my accounts where i have to use forward as attachment a lot.

    Opening a new eMail and drag and drop the other eMail into it (which is what works already) is not an option for me. Too annoying and i don't have the original subject if doing it this way.

    What if I only want one mail out of a discussion as an attachment? The way it is set up at the moment doesn't let me add a single email from a specific communication as an attachment. Only the full block of the conversation can be attached. Thanks, RD

    This is not a helpful comment. How can a user forward a message as an attachment?
