I have a Gmail account. I think it would be convenient to store some documents as Google docs and then include them as attachments in my emails.
Can this be done?

  1. Open the doc or file you'd like to share.
  2. Go to the File menu, and select Email as attachment....
  3. Select a file type from the drop-down menu.
  4. Enter the email address of the people to whom you'd like to send the doc or file. If you'd like, you can also add a subject and a message.
  5. Click Send. People to whom you're emailing this doc will receive it as a downloadable attachment in the file format you selected in Step 2.
