Can I send you an email with the document attached?

Thanks

Expert:  Jane T (LLC) replied 5 years ago.

DearCustomer

 

JA does not permit experts to have e-mail communications with person who use JA. However, if you can e-mail the files then you can just post them onto the JA reply box.

 

Be sure that your tool bar is showing (if not just click "Show Toolbar") then type a word. HIghlight that word with your cursor and then click on the infinity symbol, just to the right of the smiley face on the tool bar, and use that to enter a link for the file). If the file you are linkin is in your PC then you can use the browse feature to link that file.
