Walkthrough

 

There are two methods of forwarding a message from inside Mimecast for Outlook; a standard forward, or forwarding the message as an attachment. Which one you can use depends on whether you are forwarding one or multiple messages.

  • Forwarding a single message allows you to send it normally or as an attachment.
  • Forwarding a message as an attachment is available regardless of the number of messages being forwarded. However it is the only forward method available if forwarding multiple messages.
