Ironically, the Gmail client for Android displays them beautifully. So if you have an Android phone, just open the email there—and you don't even have to forward it. ;)

This is a known issue with all of Google's services. They do not support the .eml or the less common .mht, both of which are known and established formats. In this case it has been (for years now) one area that all the others (Microsoft, Apple, Mozilla, and most of the rest of the community) are ahead of Google on. The only option, aside from convincing ...

No, sending an email with a Google Doc and selecting "Send without sharing" does not add it as a regular attachment. The recipient will still get the same email, with a link to the Doc you sent. When clicked, the user will see the page that says "You must request permission to view this document" The best use of this feature that I can think of is to set ...

My work-around to downloading all pictures of a embedded email in Gmail is to: open email with embedded images, make sure all images shown In your internet browser goto File menu and then use the "Save Page As" option. (I use Firefox, but should work for other internet browsers.) set a destination for your page and save all files, including pictures for ...

Create a self-extracting archive with 7-Zip, make sure it is password protected and the file names are encrypted: Google will not detect the exe inside and let it through. The recipient has just to know the password (don’t send that with Gmail :)).

Gmail actually allows sending .exe files. And you don't need to do anything outside of Gmail. Instead of clicking on the clipper icon(attachment) you click on triangle icon next to it (Google Drive icon). That's it - from there its more or less the same procedure. Gmail does not allow .exe attachments but at the same time offers an option to add/attach ...

DriveApp.getFilesByName() returns a file iterator. You therefore need to slightly modify the sendMail() arguments. MailApp.sendEmail(emailAddress, subject, message, {attachments: file.next().getBlob()} );

I've found no solution yet, but I found it's faster using drag & drop to download the images. If the images would have been added as attachments, the option to download them all at once would appear. More info here: http://googlesystem.blogspot.com.es/2013/03/attach-images-in-new-gmail-compose.html

No, "download and add to GDrive" copies the file between Google servers without downloading it to your computer. That's why it's built in to Gmail. You can download the file to your Dropbox folder on your computer. (You could save steps by putting a Dropbox-folder shortcut where your "Save" dialog can use it. This varies by your desktop OS.) But you still ...

Or you can right click on the download and "save link as" and save it as .mht and open in IE. I have tried to open in Chrome and Firefox but they dont like it either.

I wrote an app called Unattach, which allows you to easily download Gmail attachments in bulk, and optionally remove them.

Maximum size for attachment is 25MB. Exceeding the limit will bounce back with an error to the sender and fails to send to the group. For attachments exceeding 25MB, Google Drive is the best as Google Groups and Gmail can be accessed with no additional login info which is obviously very secured. This can also be done with other file hosting sites like ...

You can now use Gmail's "Save to Drive" option, and then load the file in the other email from the Drive. This can be faster and more efficient than downloading the file and re-uploading it from your computer. If the user doesn't have access to the file, Gmail will prompt you to "share and send" when you send the email.

Scroll to the bottom of the message and press the Forward button. Each embedded attachment will now appear as a link with the option to delete (x). If you click on the name of the image it will download. This procedure saved a file size of 2,354,359 bytes (2.4 MB on disk) with embedded camera meta data (Camera type and settings). For the same images using ...

I have an answer but it requires forwarding the email to a yahoo email account. From the yahoo email account you can then download all the images at once. The option is at the bottom of the email. It will download the images into a zip file. If there are lots of pics it is worth setting up a yahoo account just to do this!

If the emails are grouped by conversation, click on the respective conversation, and then click on circle with a number in the middle (on hover, the number will turn in two arrows), to partially open all the messages. After this, scroll down to the last message that has a clip icon next to its date.

Here is what worked for me: "Add" your .exe file to a (new) encrypted .zip file (the "inner file".) Change the file extension from .zip to .zipx. (Of course, other extensions probably work. You could even make the extension .thepasswordisHuckleberry!) "Add" the .zipx file to a (new) unencrypted .zip file (the "outer file".) E-mail the outer (.zip) file ...

All the answers above (July 25 '13 through July 16 '13) appear not to work. It looks as if Google has refined its filters, so that it detects .exe (and other) executable files within zip or other compressed files, even if they are renamed to some other file extension. Encrypting the file makes it immediately rejected, so that doesn't work. I even tried 7-...

Dropbox has released an extension for Chrome that allows you to save attachments to Dropbox and to insert links to Dropbox files into new messages. Here's the link to the extension: Dropbox for Gmail And here's a link to the Dropbox help article detailing the extensions and how to troubleshoot it if something goes wrong: What is the Dropbox Gmail ...

You can add the file as an inline image. It doesn't look great but it works. Note to do this you must disable "Plain text mode"

I was having this exact issue and it was due to me having a directory within the zip file containing the string ".com". Once I removed this offending string the file sent fine and had nothing to do with the PSD files within. For me at least. Also, the ".com" was originally at the end of the directory name. I tried appending an extra string to the end but ...

Whilst the question is specifically about Hotmail/SkyDrive, it may be worth noting that Google have now come up with a way of doing this with Gmail/Google Drive. All it seems to do, mind you, is help you share the document correctly with the people you're emailing to - it still doesn't actually attach it to the email from what I can see. Here's the ...

There is no way to define access to an attachment in Trello. However, any type of file that is less than 10MB can be uploaded, so uploading a password-protected Word file will not be a problem.

It seems to be an issue with the way these images are embedded into the email. Normally you would get a download all if the attachments button was used. It is on the top right of the images and it looks like an arrow. However if you don't have that option the images are embedded. You only have the Google Drive Icon. So what you need to do is click on the ...

(Updated) I did a search and found a service by a company named Encryptomatic. The web page lets you specify an .eml file (or other file formats such as .msg) from your computer. It will then render the contents of the file. Link: http://www.encryptomatic.com/viewer/ A note from a legal/privacy perspective: When you specify a file, you are essentially ...

I usually do as follows: show original (it can be found in more menu that is next to reply button) download original munpack original_msg.txt (this is a Linux command, but I have the Linux subsystem on Windows 10) This extracts all images and retains their original filenames.

While Gmail allows attachments up to 25 MBytes in size, your recipient(s) email system(s) might have a lower limit. It is also possible that some of the attachment types are blocked: You can't send or receive the following file types: .ade, .adp, .bat, .chm, .cmd, .com, .cpl, .exe, .hta, .ins, .isp, .jse, .lib, .mde, .msc, .msp, .mst, .pif, .scr, .sct, .shb,...

I have found an online conversion site named Zamzar. It does convert your .eml files to any format (html, docx, pdf etc) and helps you read the complete email. No idea on the attachments yet.

You cannot customize this yourself. However, you can ask Google on their Product Forums to add this behavior See this thread.
