I believe most of us know how to email a document, but sadly many of others are still confused on it.  I wrote this post because I received an email last night from a coworker. The email was contained texts which i believe was pasted from Microsoft Words document into email body. There’s always new people who have just learn how to get the “@” thing between their username and the mail provider domains (remind me of myself 10 years ago). So i just replay and told him how to properly send a document with email.

Moreover you can attach another files others than documents, such as video, photo, compressed files and etc (depend on mail provider files and size policy). Let’s find the location of each attachment button or links of various email provider and email client applications.

The attachment button usually marked with paper clip icon except for Gmail, Gmail only use a single link. You’ll be asked for a location of document or file which will be included as an attachment. The receiver will need to download the attachment in order to work with the document (in some case of files i.e. images and pdf files, the attachments are visible directly in the email). You can attach many files at once depend on file size policy given by the email provider, this way you don’t need to write new email for every documents you want to send.
