How To... Attach Documents To An Email
In Phone, Fax & Email By davidporter

Bookmark and Share

Professionals have to share lots of documents and files online.  Pictures, audio, documents, what have you.  The preferred medium, email.  As long as it’s the right size, you can attach it.  Don’t worry, it’s so easy your grandma can do it.


Compose Email – Start by opening up your email inbox.  Click Compose or New to open a blank email.  Now click on the Attach button.  This should be somewhere near the To: box or the subject line.  It might also appear as a little paperclip symbol, depending on the program.


Select Document – After you click Attach, a dialog box opens up. Click Browse.  Now, don’t get frazzled!  All you have to do is find the file you want to attach by navigating through the proper folders.  Try on your Desktop or in My Documents.  Then, click the file, and then click Open. If you’re feeling stressed, take a deep breath – you’re almost done!


Upload – The browser should now upload your file.  You can see the progress in the actual email window.  And make sure your file finished uploading.  It can be annoying to think you sent an attachment just to find out it didn’t work.  So just be patient and you’ll save yourself the frustration.


Finish and Send – Sending email attachments is complete cake – and if you accidentally send the email without the attachment, it’s no big deal.  It happens to E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E!  Just re-send the email and make sure to attach everything before you click Send.


All in a day’s work…
