When an email is forwarded without benefit of a button, the receiver of the forwarded message is able to unsubscribe the original email address -- so my account is down a user, and the person engaged enough to be forwarding messages is then unsubscribed from my list.
That is a great point and I will definitely pass that feedback on to our developers. Unfortunately, even when we had the forward to a friend button included, we didn't see many people utilizing it so that was still a problem. Hopefully our developers can enable something in future releases that will fit your needs!
Thank you for your response! I will add this to your account as a feature request. We appreciate the feedback.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
I also, have been looking for this feature and think it should be included. Nothing builds excitement about an email campaign as the ability to easily share with and invite friends. Please bring it back!

We would find the Forward to a Friend feature very helpful in the 3rd generation editor. Please let us know when it is available. Thank you!

Hi, is there an update on the status of this feature being added to the Third Generation Editor? We recently had a custom template built by Constant Contact. When I tested out how it looks when it is forwarded from Outlook to Gmail, the formatting was completely off. It would be great to have the forwarding feature for that reason and the reasons other people have shared. Thank you!
