Gmail does not offer extremely fluid support for embedding HTML in messages.

Gmail, a popular online email service, has a number of unique features that can make organizing and composing your emails easy and fun. Unfortunately, Gmail lacks an elegant way to embed webpages into a message. Therefore, the easiest way to embed a webpage in Gmail is by copying and then pasting it into Gmail.


Step 1

Open your Web browser and navigate to the webpage you want to embed.

Step 2

Highlight the entire webpage.

Step 3

Copy the selection to your clipboard by clicking "Ctrl" and "C" keys at the same time.

Step 4

Log in to your Gmail account and begin a new email message.

Step 5

Paste the contents of the clipboard into the message by clicking "Ctrl" and "V" keys at the same time.


Many email clients support embedded hypertext markup language, or HTML. For a more flexible way of integrating webpages into your email, you can compose a message in these applications and then send it by way of your Gmail account. Mozilla Thunderbird is one such program (see Resources).
