First you should compress the file, most email clients like yahoo and gmail have a file transfer limitation. You want to make sure the file is an mp3 ( unless quality is needed, like a voice over or professional recording proof..then you should consider FTP ) drag the file onto your desktop from the Music/ITunes/ITunes Music onto your desktop, or you can drag it right out of the ITunes player.

Then locate your CONTROL key. It should be 3 keys to the left of the space bar. CTRL. You want to press the ctrl key while you click on it-if you're on a desktop or using a double click mouse, then RIGHT click on it. Both will bring up a small menu from which you should see CREATE ARCHIVE OF "FILE NAME.MP3" What this does, is creates a "zip" file or a compress archive of the file. You then make that item and attachment in your email, therefore having it on your desktop will make it easy to find. When your'e done, delete the archive file, your original in your MUSIC folder will not be affected.


Hope this helps.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear


With the Web-based Yahoo! Mail service, you can attach to your email message a saved Web page or another document in HyperText Markup Language format.
When you attach an HTML file in this way, Yahoo! Mail won't display the HTML content of the attached file in the email message body.
To view the attachment, you must click the attachment tab above the email message.Yahoo! Mail and HTML
Yahoo! Mail is a Web-based service and it's fully compatible with the coding languages used to design and display Web content, including HTML and XML, Extensible Markup Language.
This means emails sent or received in Rich text or HTML format include clickable hyperlinks, graphics and other Web design elements.
However, Yahoo! handles emails with HTML attachments in a different way to email messages formatted with HTML.

About Yahoo! Mail Attachments
Like most email programs and online services, Yahoo! Mail offers an attachment feature for adding images, video clips, audio files and HTML document to email messages.
Some email programs display the content of the attached file in the email message body, but Yahoo! Mail doesn't provide this feature for any file attachment, whether it's an image, video clip or HTML document.


Viewing Yahoo! Mail Attachments When you attach an HTML document or another file to your Yahoo! Mail message, an "Attachments" button labeled with a "Paperclip" icon appears below the email address fields and above the email message body.
Clicking the "Attachments" button opens a pane containing a list of all files attached to the email. The email sender or recipient can open each attachment to view the files by clicking the file name.

Considerations

When sending a Yahoo! Mail with an attachment, always explain the content of the attachment in the main body of the email message.
A brief explanation will encourage the recipient to click and open the attachment to view the HTML document.
Bear in mind that many email services automatically block HTML attachments because of the security risk of opening HTML files, which can contain viruses, phishing scams or open Web pages with inappropriate content.
If you want to share a favorite Web page with a friend or contact, include a hyperlink to the Web page rather than a saved copy as an HTML attachment.

Yahoo Mail is a Web-based email program that is provided for free by Yahoo.
Anyone can sign up for the service to send and receive emails from friends and family.
Yahoo places restrictions on the size and type of attachments that can be sent and received when using Yahoo Mail.
Any email attachment that contains a virus, is too large or doesn't meet the file type requirements may be blocked by Yahoo.
Virus Scanner

Yahoo Mail scans each attachment that arrives or departs from your inbox with Norton AntiVirus.
If the virus scanning software detects a virus within an attachment, Yahoo will warn you and attempt to clean it.
Yahoo does not promise that every virus will be detected or cleaned by the Norton AntiVirus software.
Only accept attachments from people you know and trust.
Don't attempt to open blocked attachments if it is known to harbor a virus.
Large Attachments
Attachments exceeding 25 megabytes will not attach to an email.
Multiple attachments that exceed 25 megabytes will also be blocked by Yahoo Mail.
Once your attachments reach 25 megabytes, you will no longer be able to add any additional attachments.
If you have many attachments to send that exceed 25 megabytes, send several emails to send all of the attachments.
If you are receiving attachments, let the sender know that you are unable to receive any attachments larger than 25 megabytes.
Slow Connection Speed
It may appear that Yahoo is blocking your attachments if you have a slow dial-up connection because they may never appear to load.
Yahoo isn't actually blocking the attachment, the connection is just very slow.
A 25 megabyte file could take over an hour to download with a 56K dial-up connection.
Your computer may go to sleep or the download may be even slower if you surf the Web while your files upload.
File Type
Only certain file types can be sent using Yahoo Mail.
Yahoo Mail allows you to add audio files, images, HTML files, word processing documents, spreadsheets and many other types of files as attachments.
Some documents are not supported, but you can send unsupported file types by renaming them, including them in a RAR or ZIP archive, creating a Word document with the file, sending the file through Yahoo Messenger or you can upload the file elsewhere and send a link to the file via email.

Send as attachment email held in 2007 Outlook Outbox


It sounds like the attachment may be to large for her to send via email. Email applications have a size limitation on how large of an attachment you can send. I would try to take the file break it down into smaller sizes and send those as attachments to see if they go through. For aneasy test before going through the trouble of creating smaller files make a word document. Name it test write this is a test document on the document and save it so it has some content in it and see if she can send it. If she can its probably the attachment is too large to be sent and you need to send it in smaller file sizes.

Cheers mate!

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.

Unable to receive emails from certain contacts


I'm assuming that "send" should be "receive" because you most definitely can send attachments from a Hotmail account, no matter what type, as we'll see in a second.
There are two solutions, neither of them pretty:
  1. Have the sender send the attachment again, with a different name, or as a compressed file. ".zip" files are fine. ".exe" files are not. So if your sender creates a .zip archive of the .exe file that he's trying to send you, that you can save, and then decompress back into it's original form and name.
    Heck, just renaming the file is enough. Have the sender rename the .exe file into a .txt file and send that as an attachment. You'll be able to download it, and then rename it back to a .exe.
  2. Forward the attachment to a non-Hotmail account. Hotmail doesn't mention this approach, but sure enough, even though you can't open the unsupported attachments, you can forward them to a different account on a different service. If that service allows you to open the attachment, you've got it.
Hotmail's goal here is, obviously, to make it difficult to open malware in attachments by accident. You have to take steps of some sort; you have to think about it.
If you go through those steps, and you still get infected? Well, it was your own doing.
