Permitted File Types
Attachments can be a great supplement to an email. However, they should only be a supplement. Large attachments can intimidate potential leads, so send one or two small attachments. However, you should never send an email with just an attachment and no content in the body. Those emails will most likely enter the recipient's spam folder.
SharpSpring allows you to upload several different file types as attachments. SharpSpring supports the following file types:
The safest file types to send are GIF, JPG, PDF, and PNG. While SharpSpring supports their attachment, ZIP files should never be included as attachments in an email.
When attaching files to emails, the attachment feature functions differently from uploading a file to a content distribution network (CDN). The file attachment feature revolves around attaching one or more documents to one email send.
To add attachments to an email, do the following:
- In the top toolbar in SharpSpring, click Content > Emails.
- Create an email, or edit an existing one.
- In the left-side menu, click the Attachment icon.
- Click the Add button.
- Attach the desired files.
- Click Save.
- Optionally, to delete attached files, click the X button next to each email.
Once the email is saved, you can preview, send, or delete the email.
