Is there anyway to attach a complete file? Currently I have to open the file and attach each individual page to e-mail it.

I'm using Yahoo,  ATT.net

By file, do you mean text, PDF, or Word document? If that is the case, you can open the "Browse" window to attach and click the file to attach.

These are usually files created by me that include Word documents and some PDF. When I click on the attachment icon and pull the file that's on my desktop or flash drive, it only opens up the files and I have attach all of the individual documents included in that file.

It sounds like what you're trying to do is to attach a folder, not a file, and I don't know of any e-mail client that does this.

 

If you have a collection of files that number more than one, when the attach dialog opens you can select more than one at a time, or all of them that are in the same folder by hitting CTRL+A, and then hitting the Open button.

 

You also have the option of using a file compression utility such as 7-Zip to gather a huge collection of individual files into a single file that you can then attach (provided it's not larger than your e-mail provider allows).

britechguy is right. you can't attach a folder to an email. If you're looking to attach multiple files to an e-mail, you can open the browse window, hit down the Control key and select the files (Windows) or hit down the Command key and select (Mac). Then hit attach. If you want to send them all as one attachment, you will have to "zip" up all the files with a program.

I've been doing what guys suggest. Guess I've been doing it right, just not my preferred way of doing things. Not the first time I've been disappointed

Plus most email servers have restrictions of the size of the file attachments sent. If this happens you have to send them in multiple emails.

I just right-click on the file(s) in question and select the email option...which will, in turn, bring up the email client.
