Gmail Problem

Gmail has one big problem. Gmail's "Forward" function only forwards plain text. This means important formatting, images, and graphics are lost. If you receive an image as an attachment, Gmail forwards it properly but if you receive it as inline they are lost while forwarding

If you receive a message that has fancy formatting or includes inline graphics, all of these are lost while forwarding.Since most mail contains these it's a big problem.But thankfully there is a very simple solution one single click.

Next time when ever you reply or fwd a message just click on "Rich Formatting" as visible in the pic just above the message box. The person will receive it as it is.

No graphics are lost if you receive for the first time or you get it from other mail hosts. But if you forward it all these get striped.
