I'm writing a new email, and in that email I'm referring to a couple of other emails. In Outlook or Thunderbird I used to just drag and drop mails to my new mail and they appeared as attachments.

In OS X Mail, some icon appears in the mail but when I double click on it, it shows plain text with headers, and not a nice HTML mail.

How can I attach it properly?

OS X 10.9, Mail 7.0 (1816)


Use Mail -> Message -> Forward as Attachment to send the selected mail messages on as an attachment.

  • No this is not working. If I double-click on the attached icon, it opens as a text file (with headers) and not as HTML mail. – relgames Nov 5 '13 at 9:39
