Adding attachments in Entourage (sending files in your email)

Step 1

Open Entourage. This is sometimes is in your dock or can normally found in the ‘Microsoft Office’ folder within your ‘Applications’ folder.

Step 2

Click ‘New’ in the toolbar to open a new email window.

Step 3

Type the email address of your recipient and press enter.

Step 4

Click the ‘Paper Clip’ icon in your toolbar

Step 5

This will bring up the ‘Choose Attachment’ window.

‘Special Places’ are listed in the left column, while the two columns on the right are used for choosing and previewing your files. If you prefer a more typical file browser you can toggle between column and list view by using the two small icons directly to the right of the back and forward directional arrows.

Example: I have a picture file on my Desktop I would like to email it.

The first step would be to click ‘Desktop’ from the list of ‘Special Places’ on the left.

Then click the picture file in question

Remember: You may need extra software to attach entire folders to emails. It’s a good habit to only select individual files for emailing.     Step 6

Click ‘Choose’ in the bottom right hand corner.

Repeat steps 4 to 6 to add more than one file to your email.     Step 7

Type a subject for your email and type your email message.

Step 8

Click ‘Send Now’


The development of email technology started about 1970. Email was intended to send text. It’s only in the last 10 years it has been retrofitted to attach other types of files. I would not recommend sending emails with over 1 megabyte of data attached.

If you have large attachments your email can run slow. This is normal.

Cloud Computing

The “cloud” has become a household name in the past couple of years, but what does it actually mean and what can it do for your business and home? According to “Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT’s existing capabilities… Cloud computing is at an early stage, with a motley crew of providers large and small delivering a slew of cloud-based services, from full-blown applications to storage services to spam filtering.” describes what cloud computing does: “In a cloud computing system, there’s a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user’s side decrease. The only thing the user’s computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system’s interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud’s network takes care of the rest.” An everyday example of cloud computing, that most people have encountered, can be found within web-based email accounts like, gmail, hotmail and yahoo.
