In the iOS Mail app, there's no "Share" button (box with an arrow) that presents the standard share sheet with options to send via Messages/Airdrop, save to Files, open in other apps, etc. Is there any way to share the contents of an email other than forwarding, replying, or printing?
As far as I can tell, this is the best solution:
- Tap the button to Print the email
- 3D touch (or enlarge with pinch-zoom on devices that don't support it) the printed page preview. Push and hold long/hard enough to pop the preview to full-screen
- Now you should see what's effectively a PDF of the email, including headers and all pages, and there will be a Share button in the top bar
- Tap the Share button to get all the standard options to share a PDF of the email
If the email has any attachments that can't be displayed inline, then it looks like the PDF that's shared will just include an icon representing the file. So these attachments would have to be opened and shared separately.
On iPad in particular, you could drag the empty part on an email and drop it to any app that supports drag&drop feature. This will include the entire email (including senders, receivers, etc) and a url scheme link back to the email in the mail app.
