Chapter 2. Sending and Receiving E-Mail > Attaching a File or Item to a Message

Attaching a File or Item to a Message

You can also add an attachment to your e-mail messages. An attachment can be a file, such as a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet, or a picture. The attachment can also be an Outlook item, such as a contact, task, or note. When you add an attachment to a message, an attachment icon appears under the Subject box, identifying the name and size of the attachment. Although you can add multiple attachments to a message, you should limit the number and size of the attachments. The size of the attachment affects the time it takes to send the message. The larger the attached file, the longer it takes to send. If an attached file is too large, the message might not be sent; the e-mail server might not be able to transfer it across its network. After you send the message with the attachment, message recipients can double-click the attachment icon to open and view the file or item.
