Opening Attachments

If your class completed the section on sending attachments you should receive an e-mail containing an attachment from someone in your class

Open the e-mail

To access the attachment, click on the file name.  The window below will appear. 

 Open will instruct the computer to open the file in the program in which it was created (WordPerfect in our example, if it is on the recipient's computer), Save As allows the file to be saved to a storage device on the recipient's computer.

Select "Save" entering the drive and folder path. After the file has been saved the user would launch the program (WordPerfect) and Select - File - Open to find the file in a similar fashion to any other file found on that local computer.  It is good practice to delete an email containing the attachment once the file has been saved because the attachment consumes mailbox space
