    Is there away to imitate the windows action: send file as attachement? You know, in windows you can right-click any file and choose to "send to mail recipient". This is very useful! How can I do it in osx leopard?

    If it is not possible is there a keyboard shortcut that gets you directly to a new email message?

    On a Mac you drag the file to the mail icon in your dock and it will pull up a blank mail with the file attached.

    Or, (while in the Finder) under Finder->Services>Mail select "Send File..."

    As I hide my doc I've made two adjustments to the tip.

    1) Made an alias of mail and placed it on my desktop. Putting a space in front of the "Mail" name places it on top of my desktop.

    2) Put an alias in my finder window tool bar. See image attached.
