Avoid Common Mistakes: What Not to Do When Sending Attachments via Email

Sending attachments via email is a convenient way to share files with others. However, it can be frustrating when things go wrong. Here are some common mistakes you should avoid when sending attachments via email.

Don’t Send Large Files

When sending attachments, it’s important to keep in mind that not everyone has the same internet speed as you do. Sending large files can cause the recipient’s mailbox to become full or their internet connection to slow down. To avoid this, compress your files before sending them. You can use software like WinZip or 7-Zip to compress your files into a smaller size.

Don’t Use Unreliable File Sharing Services

Using unreliable file sharing services can put your data at risk of being hacked or stolen. It’s important to use secure file sharing services that encrypt your data and protect it from unauthorized access. Some popular secure file sharing services include Dropbox and Google Drive.

Don’t Forget to Check Your Attachments

Before hitting the send button, always double-check that you have attached the right file(s) and that they are in the correct format. Make sure that your attachment is not corrupted or damaged by attempting to open it yourself before sending it out.

Don’t Use an Inappropriate File Name

Using an inappropriate file name for your attachment can make it difficult for the recipient to identify what the attachment contains. Always use a descriptive name for your attachment so that the recipient knows exactly what they are opening and why they received it.

In conclusion, sending attachments via email may seem like a simple task, but there are many things to consider before doing so. By following these tips, you can avoid common mistakes and ensure that your attachments are delivered safely and efficiently.
