Sending Attached Files with Eudora
Eudora allows you to attach a separate file to an e-mail message. The process is most reliable when sending to other Eudora users, but it can be done between e-mail client types (for example, PINE users can receive attachments, but the attachment is stored on the mail server, and must be FTP'ed to the user's computer). Note: The instructions below refer to Eudora Light version 1.5.2--other versions of Eudora may very slightly.
Receiving attachments with Eudora
- Set the directory to which your attached files will be saved upon receipt
- Under the "Special" menu, choose "Settings."
- Under "Settings" click "Attachments." A button (on the right side of the settings window) will appear containing the current attachment directory name.
- Click the button to select the new directory (if you want to change it), and then click OK.
- When someone sends you a message with a file attached, the computer will store the file in the directory you've specified, and there will be a comment in the message indicating the name of the file.
- You can open the file just as you would open one of the same format created on your system.
Sending attachments with Eudora:
- Create a new message as usual and fill in the "To" and "Subject" information.
- Under the "Message" menu, click "Attach File."
- In the dialog box that appears, you can locate and select a file the same was you would if you were opening it in another application.
- When you click "OK," Eudora will automatically fill in the information in the "Attachments:" line of the message header for you. (Be sure to thank her.)
- You can repeat steps one through four to attach multiple files if you wish.
- It is a good idea to mention in the body of the e-mail itself that you have attached a file and maybe even an explanation if necessary (similar to a cover letter).
- You can now send the message as you would any other, and the attachment will be sent along with it.
