You can attach files of up to 22 MB to messages you send from Outpost. You can also attach more than one file to a message, as long as the combined file sizes add up to 22 MB or less.
The types of files you can attach depends on how your Outpost account is set up:
- If you've connected Outpost to a Gmail or Office 365 account, you can attach any kinds of files that those email providers allow. Please see the documentation for your email provider to learn more about what kinds of files you can attach.
- If you're forwarding email into Outpost, your email provider's rules for attachments will also apply in Outpost. Again, please see the documentation for your email provider for details.
- If you're using an @teamoutpost.com email address, you can attach all common file types, including PDF, .jpg, .png, .doc, and .xls.
Adding attachments to a message
Attachments can be added to messages in one of two ways: dragging the attachments to the message editor window, or by clicking on the paperclip icon in the message editor window.
Drag and drop attachments
When editing a message, drag the file or files that you wish to attach to the message editor window. Image attachments, such as JPEG and PNG files, will be placed in the body of the email directly after the cursor. Non-image attachments will appear at the bottom of the editor window.
- Click the attachments icon in the formatting menu:
- Select the file to be attached from your computer.

Note: When selecting attachments from your computer, image files will appear in the attachment list and not in the message body.
