As stated in the title, I want to forward an entire conversation (as asked in this question, although the method to do this has changed a bit due to UI changes) while retaining all the attachments in the conversation so that the recipient of the forwarded conversation gets the attachments as well.

Is this possible? I tested forwarding the whole conversation but all attachments are removed when sent. Only forwarding the individual message to which a file has been attached actually sends the attachment, but that also means the recipient cannot read the rest of the conversation.

There is an icon "Forward All" in Gmail which can achieve this:-

Forward All

Needless to say, this option is only visible when a conversation has more than 1 email.

However, this clubs all the attachments of different emails within the conversation together as essentially you are the one sending a single email, so you may need to mention who sent what attachment while forwarding it.
