Another article on the, in my opinion also important, spoon-article series:
How to send an email with attachment?
For no one is born with this knowledge or the ability to do so. Nevertheless, you will sooner or later face the problem that you want to send the acquaintance just a holiday photo, text file or similar wants / wants.
How to do that is explained in the following article.
Attaching files to emails is not difficult at all. The procedure is very similar in every email program or web menu. The only thing that all have in common: Your files that you want to attach should not consume too much disk space. Some email providers offer up to 50MB per email. Most have but settled at about 10MB. How do you find out or even reduce the file size of your file? I explained in this article: WinRar? WinZip? WinWhat? – Darling I shrunk the files!
Hints for our lovely english readers: Basically, many of the articles on Nerdiy.de are translations from the original german articles. Therefore, it may happen here and there that some illustrations are not available in english and that some translations are weird/strange/full of mistakes or generally totaly wrong. So if you find some obvious (or also not obvious) mistakes don't hesitate to leave us a hint about that in the comment section.
Also please don't get confused, that instead of a "dot" often a "comma" is used as decimal separator. 🙂
I explain the e-mail with attachments in this case using the web client of Web.de. As mentioned above, many email providers are very similar. So if you are not on web.de then it will probably look a bit different for you but in general it will work similar. In the article I have made in a few places also comments on other e-mail providers.
Start a new email
Select an attachment
Write to email
Now you know how to send an email with attachment. If you want to send emails with several or larger attachments, I recommend the following article: WinRar? WinZip? WinWhat? – Darling I shrunk the files!
Have fun with the project
I hope everything worked as described. If not or you have any other questions or suggestions, please let me know in the comments. Also, ideas for new projects are always welcome. 🙂
P.S. Many of these projects - especially the hardware projects - cost a lot of time and money. Of course I do this because I enjoy it, but if you appreciate that I share this information with you, I would be happy about a small donation to the coffee box. 🙂
