EZ E-mail Attachments

Do you wish there was an easier way to place attachments in your e-mail messages? I mean, every time you go to put an attachment in, you have to wade through a slew of menus and files just to get the thing attached.

Well, with both MS Outlook Express & Netscape Mail, there is an easier way. (You knew it, didn’t you?)

With MS Outlook & Netscape Mail, you can drag & drop files from Windows Explorer to the message you want them attached to. Here’s how:

First, open Windows Explorer or My Computer and navigate to the file you want to send (note that you won’t want the window maximized). Next open your e-mail program and start a new message.

Then:

Outlook / Outlook Express:

This one is easy. Just drag the file to the body of the message and let go. You’re all attached.

Netscape:

This one isn’t too bad either. Drag the file to the address area of the e-mail (not the body). Let go and it’s all attached for you For Netscape 6, you need to drag & drop to the Attachment area on the new message screen.

If you’re using a different e-mail program, it *may* support this as well. You’ll have to experiment to find out.

Final Trick -

If you would rather not do the drag and drop thing, you could always right-click the file you want to send and select Send To, E-mail recipient. Of course, this works better if you haven’t already started the e-mail.
