Is there a way to forward an email from your inbox without actually opening it?

I don't want to open an email on my phone because it may have a virus, but I want to forward it to my IT department. Is there way to do that?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to forward an email from your inbox without opening it. However, opening the email on your phone won't give you a virus. If it indeed has a virus attached, opening the attachment itself would give you a virus, but reading the email won't have any ill effects.
