Chapter 10. Exchanging Messages Using Mail > Sending and Retrieving a File

Sending and Retrieving a File

You can easily share a file, such as a picture, document, vCard (virtual business card from your Address Book), sound, or movie by attaching it to an e-mail message. Some ISPs have trouble sending attachments between 2 and 10 megabytes MB, so it's a good idea to check with your ISP for limits on file size. Upon receiving the e-mail, the recipient can open the file in the application that created it, or save it on a disk for use in other applications directly from the Mail Viewer window (). The Message list displays the number and size of the attachments. If you send an e-mail to a Windows user, the attachment is automatically compressed in a standard zipped (gzip) format so it can be read ().
