    Hey all,

    I used to do this all the time in windows, is it possible to do on a mac?

    Right click a file, and open it as an attachment in Mail?

    I LOL'd when I realised I couldn't do this simple task. I'm not at home now, but there's a long winded way of going to the task bar above and selecting one of the options there to email it. Cannot remember off the top of my head, but either hunt around and keep clicking till you find it, or I'm sure someone here will tell you

    Don't think so, but if you drag-and-drop to the Mail icon in the dock, it'll open a new email with the file as an attachment.

    It's in the Services menu (Under the Finder menu)...not sure if there's a plug-in to get the Services menu into Contextual menus, but that seems like it would be handy.
