Inserting Email attachment

  Yimbo 14:17 09 Sep 2010

I've just composed a fairly detailed and lengthy email, and I now want to send an attachment with it. Each time I click on the document I wish to attach "send to mail recipient" I get a fresh email page. How do I attach the document to the existing email message before I send it? I'm using OE and XP

See click here and scroll down to attach a file.

In the email click the Insert menu - then on File Attachment. Browse to your file you wish to attach and click Attach.

The way you were trying to do it would work, but you would need to write your email message AFTER clicking Send to email recipient.

Thank you very much for your help! Did what you advised - and found it easy to do the job!

A useful web-site too! Thanks!

I have found it easier to first find the file in Windows Explorer, open Outlook Express and then just click and drag the file over, dropping it in near the subject area. You will get a little + sign when you are in place to attach.

I have to say I find it so much easier than finding my way around the drive paths, as I have a couple of drives etc.

This method works well for Thunderbird too, fyi.
