Attachments Hello, I simply want to add a few attachments to my email message and cannot. I put them on the desktop of my MAC and when I go to add them, they are not highlighted therefore I can't chose them to attach.

    I tried what you said but it still did not work. I had an experienced MAC user look at it and she said that since I have "Pages" instead of "Word" that I am creating documents that cannot be attached to email. BTW I am not using the "mail" application on my Mac. Just going into my Cox account and trying to attach documents. Why can't I create a doc with Pages and then not be able to send them?

Here is the easiest solution if you're using the "mail" application on your mac.
Put the files you want to send on your desktop, then open the message that you are trying to send while still being able to see your desktop with the files you want to attach.. now drag those files onto the open message. that should work.
If you're not using mail.. message me back. also If this doesn't work, tell me what are the file extensions your using as well as file sizes and the email client you're using.
hope that helps

    What the issue might be is the file format.. If you can open the document that you are trying to send in pages and try "save as" then saving it as multiple formats you may be able to attach one of those. I've never used Pages before, so I'm not sure as to why you can't send them. When you create a file in Pages, what is the extension.

How do i send email with a large attachment from my imac


Hi
Attachments to email should be less than 10mb.
Your ISP sets the limit.
Open an email and get it ready to go.
Put cursor where you want the attachment to sit on the page.
Drag your file to be attached, from the Desktop to the Email window & drop. Then clik send.
For larger attachments:
Use the free DropBox to share files with friends. You place files to be shared in the Dropbox Folder which shows in the top menu of a Mac. Very simple to use, once set up. https://db.tt/7ByRbUj

I keep getting junk mail from same address. How do I block if I own a MAC? I don't seem to be able to permanently block an email address.


This depends on what mail client you are using. In Mac OS X Mail, you need to define a rule:
  1. Open up mail and go Mail -> Preferences
  2. Click on the 'Rules' tab
  3. Click 'Add Rule'
  4. Using the editor, make it so that if the email is From the spam address (Which you put in the box), that email message is deleted.
  5. Press OK. Mail may ask you if you want to apply that rule to email messages already in your mailboxes - press yes if you want them automatically deleted.
There are similar steps if you are using a different mail client - if you are, let me know and I'll try to guide you through the steps.
Hope that helps, good luck!

We are using mac os x 10.3.9, using mail we can see our sent mail but can't open it. The message says we have to take the account online to view. We have tried a rebuild and that deleted all the existing...


Connection Doctor would help here, but unfortunately Apple did not add this feature until 10.4. :-(
If I understand your problem correctly, you can send mail successfully, but trying later to access those messages in your Sent mailbox results in this error message. If you are using an IMAP account, you may need to visit Preferences / Accounts / Mailbox Behaviors and uncheck the box for "Store sent messages on the server." If you are using a POP account, it's possible the mailbox (or a Mail preference file) is simply corrupt and will need to be deleted and recreated. Unfortunately, the Panther and Tiger mail systems are known to be susceptible to certain types of corruption.

Emailing Microsoft Word files


You have to click on the little paperclip icon in most email application (web or Mail, Entourage, etc) and then navigate to the hard drive (in your case the jump drive) and find the file to attach. In some case you need to navigate all the way up and look for a listing to .volumes.

Email download


I know macs are awesome for the drag and drop, but on firefox on a web based email it is still better to hit "browse" and then find your file that way when attaching to emails.

Select the drop down menu 'share' Select email You will be asked to select the size that you want to send, the larger the size the longer it will take to send.

Problems with attachments once they open


Are you talking about attatchment from EMAIL?

Betcha you have a lot of email.. Force your email program to compress it's folders. Perhaps even Rebuild its folders.
If all fails, get a newer or at leasst fresh install of your email
program.
Try to find where it hides your mail first and make a copy, in case everything goes to heck.

Gluck.. (hmmmm I smell Eudora)
