Below is the solution for both the problems.

So How to forward email in Windows Phone?

  1. Open your email account, tap on the email you want to forward.
  2. You will see 3 dots at the bottom of your screen, drag them up.
  3. Now you will have various options listed regarding emails. Just tap on respond.
  4. Now you will be listed with 3 options, that is reply, reply all and forward.
  5. That’s it, tap on forward option and type in the email address whom you want to forward email.

Basically the forward option should not come under the respond button. Respond means to say something in reply, however you are not replying, you want to forward the email. So it’s quite obvious that it should be apart from respond option.
