i need to send alot of documents using hotmail.
i cant find a way to send files, only individual documents.

Is this possible?

If i right click on a folder in my documents the drop down says Send to right click then give Mail recipient. any good?

no, i know that wont work, cos it will open up outlook and outlook cant use hotmail... (perhaps it can if you pay for it, im not sure)

thanks for replying though

Collect the documents you need to send in a new zip file and attach the single zip file.

Wy not just Zip the Docs then send with something like click here it as a free trial if you look at tabs at the top

Right-click on the Folder containing the docs, then go to Send to ... and then left-click on Compressed (Zipped) Folder.

The compressed Folder will then appear in your My Pictures folder. Compose your email in the normal way and then add the Compressed Folder (from My Pictures) as an Attachment to the email. Then Send as normal.

cheers guys

i tied "yousendit"- that too seems like you cant send a folder...

i tried zipping- but my HD wont allow it as supposedly i perhaps might not have enough space... which is not correct- well not on that drive anyway

Have you tried following my directions above?

Ooops - for My Pictures (above) ... read My Documents.
