When I forward email having attachment the recipient is not getting the attachment file. Mail application removes it automatically before forwarding. How can I prevent this?

    Attachments will be part of the email per default iff it has at least one recipient.

TLDR; Attachments will be part of the email per default iff it has at least one recipient.


📆 As of 01.02.2023 on Mail Version 16.0 (3731.300.101.1.3):

The default behaviour seems to be that attachments will indeed be included when forwarding messages, but only after you've added at least one recipient.

See: 'Edit' > 'Include Attachments With Replies' > 'When Adding Recipients'

When you create a new Forward message, right-click the toolbar and Customise Toolbar... You'll see an icon for Include Attachments. Drag it into the toolbar. Click Done.

You can now toggle this button to include attachments or not.

    This does not work, since the icon is grayed out.

Go to Edit > Attachment > and select "Include Original Attachments in Reply".

I really don't get it why Apple still doesn't make this a default.
