How to add a file to a PM
« on: May 23, 2014, 07:21:23 AM »

Up front, I don't know if this is the proper place.
If not, then maybe the administrator would move this post to the right place.

Simple question:
I would like to add a zip file to a pm.
how am I to proceed?
(if! at all possible)

Thanks

Can't be done -- you can't attach files to personal messages sent through the forum.

You can, however, put your file up as a shared item on a free personal Dropbox account, and then send your recipient the access link for the file in a PM.

Just make sure you have a legal right to whatever you do put on Dropbox. They do checks for illegal sharing of copyrighted materials.

Thanks, however, regretfully I don't have an e-mail of the recipient.
Anyway, forget it. Bad luck.
