Enhancement: Attaching files to email campaigns

We've improved the process to attach files to your email campaigns in the new user interface.  If you have Flash running in your browser, then attaching a file to your email campaign is as simple as clicking the "Upload" icon, choosing the file from your computer, and then watching the progress bar until the file upload is complete.

If you don't have Flash running, then the file attachment feature deprecates to standard HTML upload functionality.

In either case, attaching files to a broadcast email campaign is easy. You can attach up to 20 files to a single email campaign.

Here are some other nifty things you can do with email attachments:

  1. You can also FTP attachments ahead of time to  Just use your JangoMail account credentials to login to the FTP server.
  2. Soon, we'll be launching an API method to upload file attachments as well.
  3. You can also send personalized attachments, where the attachment file name corresponds to a field associated with the email recipient.  For example, if you wish to attach PDF files in the format of %%LastName%%.pdf, where each recipient is receiving a PDF based on his/her last name, you can accomplish that.
