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 ...

After some googling this is the best answer I can give you Click on "Options" then click on "Show original": The view source of the new window and then save that to a file that you can then attach readnotify send as attachement (gmail)

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 ...

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 ...

I think what you'll need to do is forward the message to yourself without the attachment, and then delete the original message. Just the message, mind you, not the entire thread. You do that by clicking the down arrow on the message and selecting "Delete this message".

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

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.

There is not (currently) a way to move an attachment from one card to another without going through the download, delete, re-attach process you've described.

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

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.

I'm afraid you can't. Looking at Gmail help, there's nothing related to searching within attachments. You can specify a file name, but that's it: filename:physicshomework.txt Or you could save files you want to search through to Google Docs. The simple explanation why it's not possible is that it would require a tremendous amount of indexing to be done. ...

You can enable the Inserting Images Lab. I don't have an email client set up to test receiving inline images, but sending an inline image from another account with it enabled works fine. Source: http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2009/04/new-in-labs-inserting-images.html

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 ...

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 wrote a small cross-platform tool that allows you to download attachments from GMail or Inbox, and optionally remove them from the original emails: https://rok.strnisa.com/slimbox/

There is no way to set the way an image is cropped, but the default cropping ratio has since changed. It's now 276x140 instead of the old ratio of 310x100, meaning you'll be able to see more of the image. Also, smaller images are no longer stretched out to fill the width, meaning you won't get a lo-res version.

To get around the security check, you can change the extension of your file so that it won't be scanned by GMail. For example, just rename your 'psdfile.zip' to 'psdfile.zi' That's just a workaround since the recipient has to rename the file back, losing some usability... But that's ok in most of the case.

Upload the PSD file to Google Docs & share it over email. The advantage with this approach is that Google Docs Viewer will even let recipients view the file online with Google Docs Viewer instead of opening it with PhotoShop.

The data is uploaded via normal browser means (binary) onto the Google servers. Then, on the server, it is converted into a normal attachment and the email will be sent. Same for download: GMail presents you the icon for the attachment, you click it, Google extracts the original data and downloads it via regular browser means (binary). In case of multiple ...

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 x older messages, 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"

You can't do this. What you can do is share the document or file you would otherwise send as an attachment. Tick the checkbox next to the document filename Click the Share link on the sidebar From the Share dialog that pops up with various options, you can share directly with another person by emailing them. Or you can click Get a link and select one of ...
