Sending Email Attachments

Email started out as simple text messages sent to a recipient. It didn't offer much more versatility. However, advances in the use of email created a need to deliver more than just basic content messages. Now there is the ability to send attachments. Attachment literally means to “attach” a file to a text message. The attached file is then transferred along with the message to the recipient, where it is automatically downloaded and placed in a designated default folder. Most email client applications give users the option to choose which desktop folder they would like to use to save the attachment.
