OK, here's the deal with sending files through emails...
- Sit down in a comfortable chair (uncomfortable ones will do too if necessary).
Safety tip: do not do this on a bicycle.
- Turn on your computer (and screen).
- Find your email program
- examples of email programs: AOL, Outlook, Netscape, Juno
- examples of not-email programs: Solitaire, Cat-Blaster
- Run your email program
- Find a button or pull-down menu item that says something like "compose mail" or "new message". Don't look for an item that says "self-destruct".
- Now, type your message to Spot.
- Good example: "Hi Spot. Here's my dog Lou. He's 3 and lives in Kenosha, WI. Love the site!"
- Bad example: "Hi Spot. Here's my cat Sven. I like noodles."
Here's the tricky part: attaching the file.
*** AOL users note: embedding a picture in the email WILL NOT WORK! ***
- Find a button or pull-down menu item that says something like "attach file" or "attachments" or has an icon with a disk or paper clip. Don't look for an item that says "self-destruct".
- Click on the "attach" button.
- Navigate (through the menu window that appears) to the file (picture) you want to send.
- Click "attach" or "OK" or "select". Don't click "self-destruct".
- Now, make sure you're online (that's another whole story).
- Then click "send" or something like that. Do not click "self-destruct" or anything like that.
- Turn off your computer.
- Have a cruller and sit back with a satisfied grin.
