Adding attachments to an email

Attaching files

To attach a file to your email in the composer:

  1. Click Add Attachment…, or click Insert ▸ Attachment, or press Ctrl+M.

  2. Select the file you want to attach.

  3. Click OK.

You can also drag a file to the attachment bar of the composer window.

When you send the message, a copy of the attached file goes with it. Be aware that large attachments can take a long time to send and receive.

Attachment Reminder

Evolution has an Attachment Reminder plugin you can use to remind yourself to attach a file to an email. If it determines that you have not attached the file, it displays a reminder window before the email is sent.

To enable the Attachment Reminder:

  1. Select Edit ▸ Plugins.

  2. Enable Attachment Reminder.

  3. Click the Configuration tab.

  4. Click Add, then enter keywords in your language such as "Attach" or "enclosed".

Based on the keywords you have added, Evolution searches the text of every mail you are going to send. If it finds any of the keywords in your email and there is no actual attached file, the reminder window is displayed.
