Is it possible to forward multiple emails in Gmail without doing each one individually?


If they're all in a single conversation, then yes: click the Forward All link in the top right when viewing the conversation. Otherwise, no, you cannot bulk-forward random emails.

In newer versions of Gmail this has moved to the More button under Forward All, and is only visible when you are viewing a conversation of stacked email (stacked by title replies):

    confirmed: I can't find any way to do this, and the solution LBushkin proposed no longer works. p.s. we'll always have London – Jeff Atwood Jan 9 '11 at 5:09
  • I think question actuallys asks about forwarding emails in different threads. – Mark Kofman Oct 31 '13 at 23:06

There is an easier way. Apply a common label to all the messages that you would like to forward and then use this Google Scripts to forward them all to any other email address.

  • The link the Google Sheet no longer works - it says I need permission to access the file. – Geoff Appleford Jan 2 '13 at 16:33
  • This is now fixed. Thanks! – Amit Agarwal Jan 15 '13 at 8:56
  • Thanks for a great answer. Probably worth mentioning you will lose your label. You can easily add new label as "forwarded" by adding one more column to table and 3 lines of code. – marek Jun 11 '13 at 12:24
  • It works great, but be patient since the forwarding takes a while to start. – Mauricio Gracia Gutierrez Aug 15 '13 at 15:04

You can even try this script which I created using Google Apps Script. It helps you forward bunch of emails at one go. It allows you to load and forward first 50 recent emails from your inbox. Please see the discussion thread to know more on how to forward messages tagged to a label as well.

    Please provide some more information, not just a link. The linked web page might disappear some time, leaving your answer useless. – Vidar S. Ramdal Oct 30 '12 at 10:14

You can also convert the whole thing into a PDF by using the print button at the top of all email conversations.
