I share your frustration, but OTOH, some mailers make it virtually
impossible to "include" rather than "attach". I happened to find the
command on this system quite by accident.
Also, some ISP techs don't understand the difference between "include"
and "attach" and insist on giving instructions for the latter.
(If anyone knows how to make Eudora lite include a file, I'd love a
tutorial! This thing came free with my ISP subscription, thehelp file is
abysmal and the only icon is "attach." When I go into Netscape, that
mailer lets me "include", but I hate the clunky thing. Sorry--I keep
hoping someone will know how to do it. )
