Notes 10 - Forward Multiple Messages as EML Attachments

One of the cool new mail features in IBM Notes 10.0 concerns the EML attachments feature. In Notes 10.0 users can select multiple messages in their Notes Inbox and forward them as .eml attachments. EML is a file extension for an e-mail message saved to a file in the MIME RFC 822 standard format. The primary purpose of creating a .eml file is for storing the files offline and to allow forwarding of e-mail messages and their content.
This new feature in Notes 10.0 allows users to keep multiple messages separate rather than having them run together in the forwarded message.

Forward messages as .eml
To use the new Notes 10.0 feature open the Inbox and select one or more messages to forward. Next select Forward - Forward as Attachments.

Next a new IBM Notes Email message is opened with the emails attached as .eml attachments.

When the recipients of the email with the attached .emal attachments receive the message  and open the attachments in the email the formatting and structure of the IBM Notes Email message stays in tact regardless of the mail client the recipients use.

If an Email message that a user is forwarding contains attachments, the attachments are also included in the .eml attachment for the Email message. I tested this an it works like a charm. Another great feature in Notes 10.
