Compose a message, specifying the recipients in the To field, entering a Subject, and a descriptive Message to ensure to the recipients that this is not a spam message, and that the attachment is business correspondence that they should be expecting.  For really large attachments, you may want to provide warning in your message so that the recipient can choose an appropriate location to store the file.

9. When you are satisfied with the message, click the Send button.
