    Hi,

    How can I get my attachments in OSX Mail to just be attachments and not take up my entire dialog box. I can't even type in a message the attachments are so large, especially if they are .pdf's, etc.
    Thanks.
    Frank

    Do you mean "dialog box" or "New Message window"? You write your message in the New Message window.

    Why don't you write your message first and then attach your graphic file?

    New Message. I agree, I should write first (sometimes I forget then to attach... I know, that's my problem, but the attachments are still HUGE!

    true with the attachments being huge but I love the drag and drop thing you can do...
    a possibility is to send your attachments as .zip

    You can right-click on the attachement and choose "View as Icon".
