Test Emails vs Test Attachments

When I share email tests with a group, I often send the sample to myself and then attach that sample email to an internal email that can get passed around for approval. I recently got the following response from a co-worker:

 

It’s important to send actual emails rather than attachments because they function differently. Some things may be an issue in an actual email that you can’t see in an attachment, and vice versa. I’d recommend always sending the test emails, not test attachments.

 

I'd appreciate any thoughts or feedback from the Community on this either being the case or not being the case. With the groups of internals involved with each email being different most times, I'd prefer to keep it simple and send the sample to me each time. Thanks!
