Drag and Drop Forwarded Messages in MS Outlook

Dennis Faas's picture

How many times have you received a forwarded message and you have to keep opening each e-mail until you get to the one that actually has the forwarded message? It can be very irritating and time consuming to go through several e-mails to read the intended message and then backtrack to answer the person who forwarded it to you.

When you receive a forwarded message as an attachment instead of inline, you can drag and drop the attachment into your Inbox or other mail folder to read it. You can then reply directly to the original sender.

When forwarded e-mails are nested, as they are many times when they come from an AOL account, open each attached message and drop the original message into your mail folder.

You will then be able to open an e-mail to reply directly.
