Lesson 15. Working with Attachments > Creating Attachments

Creating Attachments

To attach a file to a Lotus Notes mail message, do the following:

  1. Create the mail message. Make sure your insertion point (cursor) is in the message body at the exact point at which you want the attachment to appear.

  2. Choose File, Attach or click the Attach icon on the toolbar. The Create Attachments dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 15.1.

  3. In the Create Attachments dialog box, select the location of the file from the Look In drop-down field and navigate to the location of the file in your file system.

  4. The Compress box is enabled by default. Leave this box checked.

    Compressed files use less space on a disk and take less time to transfer from one place to another than uncompressed files. But don’t have Notes compress a file that you intend to send to a non-Notes user; the mail router will just have to decompress the file again before transferring it because Notes uses proprietary compression techniques and other mail programs probably won’t be able to decompress the file. If you want to compress a file for sending to a non-Notes mail recipient, use a compression program such as WinZip.


  5. Click the Create button. The attached file appears as an icon within the body of your mail message (see Figure 15.2).
