You may not know, Mail in MacOS allows you to attach documents and various files anyway and at the end of mails, regardless of where the cursor is located. Let’s find out how.
Mail allows like any other mail management application to attach files to emails, such as documents and photos. To add an attachment, just write or reply to a message, and attach the file by clicking on the dedicated icon in the window’s toolbar that allows you to compose the message and select the desired document.
By default the message is attached to the point of the message where we are with the cursor. If you do not like this behavior, you can have Mail enter the attachments at the end of the message. Here’s how to proceed:
If you want to do it for the only message you are writing:
- Select the “Attachments” item from the “Edit” menu and from here “Insert attachments at the end of the message”.
If you want to enable this option for all the messages you will write from now on:
- Open Mail
- Do not open any message, select the “Attachments” item from the “Edit” menu and check “Insert attachments always at the end of the message”.
We remind you that with MacOS 10.10 or later, you can use the “Mail Drop” function to send files that exceed the maximum size allowed by the e-mail account provider. Mail Drop uploads large attachments to iCloud, where they are encrypted and stored for 30 days.
- If we have an iCloud account and have logged in to iCloud when we click Send, Mail automatically sends the attachment using Mail Drop. Mail Drop attachments are not part of the iCloud storage space count.
- If we do not have an iCloud account or if we have not logged in, Mail asks whether to use Mail Drop (select “Don’t ask me again for this account” to always use Mail Drop).
If a recipient uses Mail with OS X 10.10 or later, the attachments are included in the message. In other cases, the message includes links to download the attachments and the related expiration date.
To enable or disable Mail Drop for an account choose Mail> Preferences, click Account, select the account, click Advanced, then select or deselect “Send large attachments using Mail Drop”.
