I have a long chain of 20+ emails in GMail I wish to forward to someone else -- I don't want to forward them individually. How can I do that?

In the latest GMail, you can do this via the "More" menu, if you have the conversation selected:

Gmail more, Forward All

Click More, then click Forward All. This results in a new email sent to whomever you choose with all the emails in the conversation / thread in a single email that looks like this:

Forwarded conversation

Subject: Subject

(all the emails in the conversation / thread will be included in the body here as one giant email)

And this forward itself ends up being part of the original conversation, so I don't know what happens if you forward a conversation twice. :)

I could not find the "Forward all" feature in new GMail. My "More" menu has 6 options: (all as shown in screenshot above, except does not have Create Event, does not have Forward all). – bobobobo Jun 14 '13 at 14:22
@bobobobo it will not be on the main screen, rather when u open the mail you can see it on the top. – ay89 Oct 6 '14 at 11:54

In the current version of GMail, as of 7/22/13, hitting the Forward button does "Forward All" by default.
