Tip: Want to make spell checking automatic before you send an email? In the main Outlook window,
select File➝Options➝Mail (Alt, F, I, then use the arrow keys to select Mail). In the “Compose messages”
section, turn on the checkbox labeled “Always check spelling before sending” and then click OK.
Attaching a File to an Email Message
Email is a fast, convenient way to send documents and other files: Just compose
your message, attach a file, and send. The recipient gets your message, along with
the attachment, which he can open in an appropriate program such as Word for a
word-processing file or Excel for a spreadsheet.
Here’s the quickest way to attach a file to an email message: Compose the email and
then open Windows Explorer and resize the window so you can see both Windows
Explorer and your Outlook message window. Next, click the file you want to attach,
drag it into your email message, and drop it there. Presto—instant attachment.
You can also attach a file by taking one of these paths:
• In the Message tab’s Include section, click Attach File (Alt, H, AF).
• Select Insert Attach File (Alt, N, AF).
Either path opens the Insert File dialog box, where you can find and select your file;
click Insert to attach it to your email.
