Android email apps that allow forwarding spam as attachment


Recommended Posts

I need to report spam on my Gmail account through my android phone. But, Gmail app for Android does not have "forward as attachment" feature and accessing Gmail web is very finicky.

I just need a mail client app that'll allow me to forward messages as an attachment -- headers included -- to spamcop. I'm trying not to resort to trial and error.

@jprogram unfortunately gmail doesn't have that option on apps, neither for phones nor tablets, just like you said.

Even through a web browser, gmail has removed the possibility to forward as attachment.

There are certainly 3rd party mail programs that can do that, outlook being one of them, and I think thunderbird has that option as well.

Back a while ago I wrote a program in apps scri_pt in which I can report all spam in my spam folder to spamcop, but again, apps scri_pt only works on computers, not phones or tablets.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, although maybe someone knows of something that works on phones.

Dealing with spam can be such a headache, especially when the usual solutions don't quite fit the bill. I remember a time when I was struggling to find the right email client on my phone for a similar issue.

Have you considered checking out some alternative mail client apps? I stumbled upon one that not only helped me manage my emails better but also had a nifty feature for forwarding messages as attachments. It saved me a ton of time and hassle.

Also, if you're looking to make the most out of your smartphone, there are some great apps that pay you real money without investment. They might not solve your Gmail dilemma directly, but hey, a little extra cash never hurts, right?

There is always the option to report using the app. As for apps that pay to play that's the same as doing surveys and reviews...the price you pay is your privacy.
