How to Forward Mail in Windows 8

How to Forward Mail in Windows 8

We were compelled to write this because the issue has come up several times here. So after being asked, “How do I forward an email in Windows 8 again?” we figured that this question must come up outside of just our offices.

The simple answer is that “forward” is buried as a drop-down option on the “Respond” button.

When you click on “Respond” you’ll be given the option to Reply, Reply All, and Forward.

This of course begs the question as to why Microsoft felt compelled to combine “forward” and “reply” into the same button, which is completely counter-intuitive.
