How to Forward an Email on the iPhone

Email forwarding is one of the simplest ways to share an email that you receive with another person. Forwarding an email essentially means that you are sending an email that you have received to another person. It is different from replying to an email because a reply goes back to the person that originally sent the message. Forwarding allows you to send the email message to a third party.

The Mail app that handles your email on the iPhone has a forwarding feature built into the application, but it might not be obvious how you can use it. Our article will walk you through the process of locating and forwarding an email message that you have received to a person of your choosing.
