Is it possible to attach previous emails to a new email I am composing?

Re: Email attachments

You have a setting that lets you forward emails as an attachment.  Is that what you mean?  If so, and assuming you are in the new email format, on the Inbox page click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the page, then on Settings.  Under Mail Settings about halfway down the page, you will see the option to do that.

Re: Email attachments

I did that, however that appears to be for forwarding ALL emails to a specific address. If you X the box to enable email forwarding without entering an address, the system does not retain the choice.
I need the system to enable me to have the choice to attach a prior email to a draft email instead of only documents, photos on my computer.

You seem to be referring to       (gear icon) / Settings / Mail / Auto Forward

I believe Latoque is referring to (gear icon) / Settings / Mail / Mail Settings / Forward emails as

I don't believe the new Open-Xchange "Appsuite" webmail has that capability.

 

Sure, Appsuite stinks compared to Zimbra, but look on the bright side: Comcast is saving tons of money, and its senior managers are getting even richer than they were before, which is why they made the switch.

Bruce is correct about what I intended.  But as for your last question, the only way I can find to do that is to save the email you want to attach to your computer.  Then open the draft and click on "Edit" in the toolbar.  That will open a new message that you can attach a file to.  Navigate to the saved email and attach it.  Hopefully your recipient's email program can open it.
