I often need to attach attachments from one email (or multiple ones) to another, without wanting to forward the original message. In a desktop client I would simply click and drag the attachment from one message to the other, but that doesn't work in Gmail. Having to first save the attachment is a pain... Is there a way this can be done?
In particular, I am looking for an easy solution to a situation where I want to consolidate multiple attachments from different messages into one new message. For single messages I'll live with forwarding and changing the message per below answers...
Mailbrowser, per @phwd below, is a pretty good solution for multiple file forwards. Find the file you're looking for, copy the file location and paste it in the file upload dialog. No click and drag, but a lot quicker than manually saving and re-uploading.
