How to Send Attachments
“Can I send file attachments, such as Word documents or Excel spreadsheets, to my mailing list with GroupMail?”
Yes! You can add file attachments, images and hyperlinks to your group email campaigns as needed in GroupMail.
Here is how to send attachments in GroupMail
1. To attach a file to your email, click on the Insert menu in the GroupMail Message Editor and select Attachments.
To locate the files you wish to attach to your email (i.e. a Word Document, .txt file, Excel Spreadsheet, PDF or PowerPoint presentation, etc.) simply click on the Add File Button on the Attachment Manager screen.
2. Highlight each file that you would like to add to your email by clicking on the file name (you can select more than one file at a time by holding down the Shift Key as you click on each file you want to add.) Then click Open to add the file(s).
3. If you want to REMOVE a file attachment from your message, simply highlight the file(s) you want to remove (again, you can select more than one by pressing the Shift Key while you click on each file) and then click the Remove button on the Attachment Manager screen.
4. The files that you have selected to add as attachments to your email will appear on the Message Editor Screen below the Subject Line. You can use the drop-down arrow to see more than one file if you added more than one.
That’s all there is to it!
Now, you can just finish editing your message and send it as usual.
Some thoughts about sending attachments by email
Adding attachments (and especially large attachments) to your email will impact the speed of sending. Additionally, some people are wary of opening attachments sent by email, especially when they are sent by someone they do not know personally. When you want to share files with a group of people by email, it is better practice to upload the file(s) to a publicly accessible site on the Internet (i.e. your website, blog or a file sharing site such as DropBox) and send a link to the file(s) in your email instead.
Think of email as a bridge, rather than a vessel.
