Attachments: from computer, files and Dropbox
When sending an email using Fastmail on a web browser, there are three locations you can access files:
Upload from Computer
Selecting to upload an attachment from your computer will open the computer's file chooser. This works whether you are on a desktop computer or accessing Fastmail over a mobile device's browser.
Fastmail supports uploading multiple files to your email draft if you select more than one file in the file chooser.
Attach from File Storage
Choose one or more files from your file storage to attach to your email. Select the files you'd like to include in your email, then use the "Attach files" button.
Attach from Dropbox
When you go to add files from Dropbox, you will first need to log in to your Dropbox account (if you're not already logged in), then confirm that you want to link Fastmail to your Dropbox account. Dropbox provides information on what happens when you link to a Dropbox account.
You can revoke access from Fastmail to Dropbox at any time.
Once linked, you can browse the files in your Dropbox storage. Select the ones to include, then use the "Attach files" button.
To remove an attachment from a draft email, use the cross icon next to the filename to delete the attachment from the email.
To remove an attachment from a received email, select the checkbox for the attachment to remove. This brings up a popup context menu. From here you can
- download the attachment(s) in a zip file,
- save the attachment(s) to your Dropbox account,
- delete the attachment(s) from the email system.
If you delete an attachment from a received email, Fastmail will show that there were attachments that have been removed.
