How Do i Add attachments to an e-mail?

I don't see any place to upload them. I would rather not insert them into the e-mail but have them attached. Thanks!

How Do i Add attachments to an e-mail?

Updated: October 2017

 

Hello,

Files, such as PDF's, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations, can't be added as attachments to your campaign email, but they can be hosted online and then linked. This allows your contacts, who may not have compatible software, to read it and also keeps a large file size from making your email undeliverable.

You have a few options for hosting your files online:

  • Constant Contact - Upload any document with a compatible file type and size to the Library.
  • Your Own Website - Upload your file to the web and host it on your own website, or ask your Webmaster to do it for you.
  • Third Party Service - Upload your file to the Internet with a third party file hosting service, such as Digioh or Google Drive.

Once your document is hosted you can copy the URL and then insert it into your Email campaign, Survey Invitation or Event-related email.

For our 2GE users:

Place your cursor over the block where you want to add the document and click Edit this block.

Place your cursor where you want the link to appear in the block or highlight the text you want to turn into the document link and click Insert.

Note: If your document is already hosted on the web, click the Insert Link button in the editor to add the document's URL.

Place your cursor over the Document Link icon and click the Plus button.

If your document:

  • Is already in the Library - Select the document from the list. You can download the document to preview it by clicking on the document name.
  • Needs to be uploaded - Click the Upload a New Document button to drag and drop your document into your Library. Then click Upload Files and Done.  

Click Insert.  Click Save to continue editing your email.



For 2GE users check out this FAQ for more information, for 3GE users see this article.  

Thanks,

Attachments to Emails

Hello,

I am an instructor and plan to use this type of product to stay in touch with my students. Part of my courses requires me to sent files to those that have taken the class and or provide a place where they can log-in and download those files.

Will Constant Contact permit or does it provide for group e-mails with file attachments? Or can it be set up to allow the groups to sign-in and download the files?   

Thanks for any suggestions,

Patrick

Attachments to Emails

CC doesn't permit attachments, but they do have suggestions for how to deal with this. Click "Help & Support" tab, then click Frequently Asked Questions, then type "attachments" into the search box. There are several articles on this issue with solutions.

Is it possible to add and attachment to a CC email.  I have to send a personalized "letter" email to over 150 people and need to attach
a sample letter we want them to send to their clients.  Is this possible?

I do not think you can have attachments because of the SPAM issue. You can put a word doc on your server or create a HTML page and then link either of them from your email.

I am told that CC does not support attachments because it increases SPAM filter catches. They suggest you add a link to a page on your site.

I usually host a document and then insert the link. :)
