Begin the attachment process by opening a new e-mail message in the standard manner. Then point your mouse at the paperclip image on your toolbar. Click on the paperclip.

Next, you will be greeted by the Attachments Dialog Box. Select Browse. Then navigate to the file you want to attach.

The Attachments Dialog Box appears again, this time with the path to your desired file specified next to the "Browse" button. Next, you want to use this path to place a copy of your file into the e-mail. To do this click Attach.

You may have to wait for a period as long as a few minutes, depending on the speed of your connection and the size of the attached file.

Do not do any other operations while the file is attaching. After the wait is over, the name of the attached file appears in the white space at the bottom of the Dialog Box. That completes the process. Click on Close and return to and send your e-mail. Remember, it is good practice both to provide a subject for your e-mail and also to include a message telling the recipient that a file is attached.
