    Hi there,

    Is there any way that I can add/include an attachment, from within an e-mail I am writing?

    I know I can copy a photo and paste in an e-mail, or "send" a photo or file from it's originating app to an e-mail - but how an I "fetch" these files from within an e-mail I am already composing.
    - this becomes a big problem when trying to include more than 1 document in an e-mail

    Regards
    William R.

    If you want to include multiple items then I have a workaround of sorts.

    Save the required items to Dropbox then generate links from Dropbox and copy these into the email. This has the benefit of not requiring massive emails to be sent/received and the recipient can download the files at his/her leisure.

    Thanks Gabriel1, thing is though this would mean I would need the recipient to have access to my DropBox? It's a great idea if sending mails to myself, but unless I'm missing something, it isn't that feasible for doing business communications and the like?

    Cheers

    Well you can provide a password so that they can only access the files you want them to.

    If you put the files in Dropbox's Public folder, no password is necessary. Just the link.

    If you want to create and send links to entire folders (password protected or not) you can use Box.net.
