Sending PDF documents as attachments may not seem much of a task to many, but for some, it is a task that is difficult than climbing a mountain. Well, it is just about being knowledgeable about the technology that makes the difference. Those who are aware of the process find it easy, whereas, those who aren’t will avoid getting in any of it. Many people are sending emails via phones and tablets these days, so if you are among those people, then you will definitely want to know how to send PDF documents as attachments from certain email accounts on smartphones and tablets.
The email app that we have taken to understand the procedure is Gmail, but the process remains the same for other email apps. If you are using Gmail app and want to send an email through it, which has a PDF file as an attachment, then here is how you will send it. The process stays the same in case you have configured any other email with your Gmail, let’s say SBCGlobal. There won’t be any difference in the process that follows next.
Sending PDF documents as attachments via Gmail on your smartphone and/or tablet:
If you are using the Gmail app for your Android smartphone or tablet or for iOS, to send a PDF as an attachment, first start the application by tapping on the relevant icon that you find on the home screen and logging in to your mail account (if necessary), then press the [+] button at the bottom right.
Next, type in the ‘To’ email address of the recipient, in the Subject field the subject of the message and in the field Write email the body of the email. Then click on the paper clip icon located at the top and attach the PDF taking into account the maximum size limits I mentioned in the Gmail Web step at the beginning of the guide.
To be precise, if you are using Android, select the item Attach file or the one Insert from Google Drive to, respectively, withdraw the PDF from your device memory or from Google Drive.
If, on the other hand, you are using iOS, you can only select recent attachments or those on Google Drive. If your PDF is saved in another location, open the relevant app (e.g., File ), select the document, press on the button for sharing (the one with the rectangle and the arrow ) and select the Gmail icon from the menu that appears, to start composing a new mail message with the attached PDF.
Finally, and then to send the message, press on the button representing a paper airplane that you find in the upper right part of the display. Done!
