Attach a File to an Email Template

Attach files directly to your Email Templates to avoid the need to manually attaching the file each time you send an email. This feature works while using the VanillaSoft's Web Email Form (Email sent using Desktop Email Application [a third-party application] can not include pre-defined attachments). More information on how to configure an Email Template can be found in our How To Create an Email Template article.

In order to attach a file to an Email Template, you must first have it saved in your Document Library. Steps on how to upload files to your Document Library can be found in our Add File to Document Library article.
