How to Email an Essay

Save

Essays are a short piece of writing that exposes a writer’s viewpoint on the subject. Creating this exposition is a common assignment in school. You may need to send your essay to several people: a reviewer for feedback, an editor for corrections, and finally, the person requesting the essay for their approval. While you can send a hard copy to these people, a quicker and less costly way is to email the essay either as an attachment or through cut-and-paste, if your recipient does not have the program for opening the essay attachment.

Attachment

  • Open your email program. This example will specifically use Thunderbird, though nearly all email applications will have similar functions, though named in slightly different ways.

  • Start a new message. In Thunderbird, click the “Write” button to make the message window appear.

  • Enter the email address, title and any text as needed. Then attach the essay file. In Thunderbird, click the “Attach” button to display a standard file dialog box. Navigate to the essay and double-click to attach it to the message.

  • Click the “Send” button to email the essay.

Cut and Paste

  • Open the essay in the program that it was created in. Press the CTRL and A keys simultaneously to select the entire essay. Then press the CTRL and C keys to copy the essay.

  • Open your email program. This example will use Thunderbird.

  • Start a new message. In Thunderbird, click the “Write” button to make the message window appear.

  • Enter the email address, title and any introductory text.

  • Move your cursor to below the introductory text and press the CTRL and V keys to paste the essay into your message.

  • Scroll through the essay and correct any format errors.

  • Click the “Send” button to email the essay.
