Chapter 18. Creating New Messages > Working with Attachments

Working with Attachments

When you send an email, you can attach any type of file to be sent with it. Sending attachments is an effective method of communicating highly formatted information such as agendas, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and digital pictures. Ever since virus writers began inserting viruses in files attached to email messages, Outlook has implemented a fairly restrictive attachment policy. This section provides instructions for sending attachments, explains Microsoft's attachment security policy, and offers some workarounds and suggestions for best practices for sending attachments so that all recipients can read and access them.

Enclosing Attachments

There are two main methods of sending attachments. You can enclose an attachment or you can embed an attachment. Enclosing an attachment simply means that a file is attached to an email message. Depending on your message format (HTML, rich text format, or plain text), your attachment will show in the message or in the message header.
