All email applications provide forwarding features, usually accessed through a simple icon directly on the email message. The general procedure is to open the email, find the Forward button or menu item and select it. A new email message window opens in which you enter your recipient's email address and compose your message. When you forward a message, any attachments are forwarded as well.
