How to add attachements to an email


The following tutorial will give you the basics of sending an email with attachments. You may need to adapt the steps according to your program.


  1. Open your email client.
  2. Click on New Mail or Write Message or any other similar button.
  3. Type the address where you want to send the email in the TO field.
  4. Type a title for the email in the SUBJECT field.
  5. Type your message in the text field.
  6. Click on the button that says Attachment or Attach. Some program may have a clip icon. Also you can search in the FILE menu for an Insert Attachment or Insert file option.
  7. Now find the file you want to add to your email. You may need to click on a Browse or Find button.
  8. Click on the desired file. If your email client allows you do attach multiple files at once, then select all your files by holding the CTRL (or Shift for MAC users) key.
  9. Press the Insert key or click the Open button to attach the file.
  10. To attach another file, repeat the steps.
  11. Click on Send and you are done.


  • change your images format in .JPEG because it will take up less space and they will load faster.
  • make sure the receiver can open the files that you’ve sent him. Most text editors can open RTF (Rich Tet Format) files. All browsers can open .JPEG or .GIF files.
  • if your receiver is using a modem for their internet connection, then make sure that the files that you send are small enough for him to download. They shouldn’t be larger than 300K.
  • you can also archive the files using WinZip or WinRar. The receiver also needs to have these programs.
  • AOL won’t read MIME attachments. MIME is a method for archiving and sending files. So if you are sending some files to an AOL user, make sure that MIME is disabled. (Search in the Sending Options menu or Preferences).
