I haven't been able to figure out how to attach a file, when sending out a constant contact email, please help
Due to viruses, you cannot send out a Constant Contact email with an attachment.
If you have a PDF, you can upload it to Constant Contact and then link to it in your email by using MyLibrary. For assistance with this, please check out this FAQ.
For other documents, you can use a file hosting site such as Mediafire.
I hope this helps,
I would like to make it easy for my readers to get a PDF copy of my emails. Currently I have to send them a second email from Outlook with the PDF attached... a real waste of time and eliminates a key benefit of Constant Contact. Seems like it would be easy to create a feature so recipients of the emails could easily click on "save to PDF" or "download a PDF of this email".
I've looked for something like this in Constant Contact but cant find it. Am I missing it somewhere?
Unfortunately there is no direct way to do this in our system, however there is a work around.
Print your email to a PDF using a program such as doPDF.com, here is the FAQ explaining the process and where you can download this program.
Upload the email you just printed to a PDF as a document link inside of your email. Doing this will allow your contacts to open the email up as a PDF and download the PDF file.
Unfortunately there is not a way to attach any file directly to the email. The workaround we suggest is putting a link to a PDF in the email so it would pull from your Constant Contact library.
The only way I can think of to include a vcard file would be to have it hosted elsewhere online. Do you have a website you could host this on? In this case, you could provide a link in your email to this page of the site.
Hope this helps,
Thank you for your post.
Attachments to emails sent through a bulk emailer like Constant Contact can actually prevent your messages from being delivered. Therefore, we do not allow them in any email yo usend through Constant Contact.
Instead, you can upload the file (Word document, Excel Spreadsheet, or PDF document) to your MyLibrary or MyLibraryPlus and then use the "Insert Document Link" feature to build a link to it within your email. This way, when your contacts click on the link, it will open the actual file for them.
