    I need a good example of how to use dropbox. I have a 69.5 file in my dropbox folder, I highlight it then go to my Mac Mail, select the receiver, State the subject Hit enter and 'Paste" the file done not appear.
    Where have i gone wrong ?

    I just hold the option key and drag the file to the new email and let go of the track pad and option button - shows up right away.

    Edit - missed the 69.5 - if the file is large - the post above works - Control menu < select "Copy Dropbox Link"

    That method will attach the file to the email. Assuming the 69.5 number in their post means megabyte or gigabyte, this will likely not send through their email provider, so a Dropbox link would be a better solution. If it's 69.5KB, though, then attaching should work just fine!
