When to attach?

When should you attach a file to your email and when not? This is usually dependant on how many people you are emailing and whether they are internal to the University or external. The below table provides some basic guidelines:

1-3 recipients 4+ recipients
Internal audience Yes No*
External audience Yes Yes

*In such cases it is always better to put the file on the staff filestore (i.e. Y drive) under the appropriate folder (e.g. “store – interim”) and then email people saying where they can find it.
