6. Sending an attached file

You can send any file, even an image file, using Pine. Make sure that the recipient has Pine or some other mailer that allows “MIME attachments.”

  1. Compose your message normally.

    Use the same procedure as in Sending mail, above, but stop short of step 3—that is, don't type ^X to send the message.

  2. Type ^J (Attach).

    Pine will prompt you with the message “File to attach:”. Type the name of the file you want to send. Then Pine will prompt you with the message “Attachment comment:”; type a few words describing the file you are attaching.

  3. Type ^X to send the message.

    The remaining steps are just like normal.
