|To send a file attachment
While composing a message, you can click on Attach button and select File... or you can select File, then Attach, then File... . A dialogue box will come up allowing you to select the file that you want to attach to the message.
NOTE: Consider the end user. Large attachments take a long time to both upload and download. Attachments larger than 3MB may be rejected by the mail server.
To open a file attachment
Alternatively, you can click on the paperclip icon at the beginning of the message. This will show the file attachments as icons at the bottom of the screen. By double-clicking on the icon, you will open up the attachment. Alternatively, by right-clicking on the icon, it will give you the options of either opening the file attachment or saving the file attachment to your computer.
WARNING! Many computer viruses can be transmitted through file attachments. Before opening a file attachment, be sure you know who is sending you the attachment and if you were expecting the attachment. It is recommended that you have a virus-scanning program installed and the latest anti-virus definitions installed. CalWeb is not responsible for any damage to your computer if you open an virus-infected file.

Hang Up After Downloading
