Hi Jeff,


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?

Hello Kelly,


Unfortunately there is no direct way to do this in our system, however there is a work around.


Step 1:

Print your email to a PDF using a program such as, here is the FAQ explaining the process and where you can download this program.


Convert to a PDF


Step 2:

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.


Upload a PDF
