The part I've quoted below is an outstanding explanation for how to attach any
type of file to an email message. I believe what causes a bit of the trouble
some folks have is that they're not always sure of where the SignWriting file
they've just created is saved on their computer. My suggestion is to use the
"save as" function instead of "save" and manually direct the computer to save
the file to a particular place on your hard drive or your A: drive (floppy

Hello Ron and Everyone on the SignWriting List!
Please excuse my delay in responding to all of your public messages. In
recent weeks I have received an increase in long, very detailed private
email messages from people. Several of the messages are about technical
symbols, so they are long ones. I printed some of the messages and one was
five pages long, another three, another four. People are just pouring their
hearts out to me, which is truly an honor, and I have been spending most of
my time writing personal responses. And I know others haven't heard from
me! The internet is an astonishing place, isn't it? It has truly changed my
life, that is for sure :-)

Anyway, your question. Email software has a feature called "Attach
Document" (or something with a similar name). Some people use Netscape.
Some use Internet Explorer. I use Eudora Pro to manage my email messages.
All of these programs have the same feature.

To attach a document, you first write an email message, and before you send
it, you "attach" the .sgn file to the email message. Then you press the
SEND button, and both the email message and the document are sent at the
same time.

So...I guess you need to read the manual that came with your email
software, or I bet there is a Help section online that will give you the
instructions on how to attach a document in the software you are using.
