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!

I want to send a file to my friend through email?


Hello ,

Here is the solution for you . Just follow the steps below :
  1. Open a new email and address it to whomever you are sending the photo to.(for eg : Click on the compose mail and enter the email address)
  2. Click "Attach," which is typically located on the tool bar above the body of the email template. It will also generally have a paper clip graphic to help you locate that button.
  3. Select the "File" option. Many email programs offer a "File" or "Photo" option; simply select the "File" option as it's much easier and has no effect on how the file is sent or received.
  4. Choose the photo you want to send from your computer. You can access different files in your computer by choosing the "Browse" option at the bottom of the Menu box. Once you pick the photo, select "Open" to attach it to your email. This may take a few moments, so be patient.
  5. Review your email. You should see an attachment directly below the subject line of your email; that is your photo. You can repeat the process to add more than one photo if you choose to do so.
  6. Write your email and send it as you normally would.
Hope you be successful.

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.

On a MacBook I need to move an email message I have in a folder


The simplest way to send this attachment would be to forward the original email to your desired contact. it will keep the attachment if you Forward rather than replying. But you should be able to select the attachment and drag it out of your email to then drop it on your desktop. If not, try highlighting the attachment and then navigate through the top menus and look for an option like save or copy. If you copy, then select your location and then go back to that menu and choose paste. Let me know what you see/get...

How to send a attachment with a email


Typically, you can either go through a menu at the top of the screen to add an attachment (like, Message: Add attachment).

A nearly universal way:
Open Windows Explorer. Go to the file you want to send, whether it's in your My Documents folder or what.

Make the window take up a fraction of your screen. Find the file in that smaller window. Drag-and-drop it onto your e-mail message.

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.
