Are there any plans to integrate teams into outlook email so we can have chats within the original email instead of forwarding and replying to all?

@Brendan Brady  instead of doing that, you can send/forward/cc the email message to the email address for the desired channel in your Team. People can then have a chat conversation about the message.

Thank you @Dean Gross 

I was aware of this functionality but I want to have a chats one to one team members meaning I have to create a separate channel for just two people. If I send an email to a channel for the accounts dept, everyone in the accounts department gets the notification which is what I'm trying avoid and defeats the purpose of having one to one chats and I may aswell just forward the email. Consequently, if I want to have one to one chats around and email it means I have to create mutliple channels with individual team members which starts to become unwieldy. If we had the option to just @ mention someone in the original email we could avoid having to forward emails to individual channels.

Well, i get What you mean, but I haven’t heard anything about such integration! Go to uservoice and do a request for people to vote!

Thanks @adam deltinger I've just added the suggestion.

 

What do you think of the suggestion does it make sense to you?

You could always just screen-snip and paste into chat the email that’s what I do and it works fine.
