Problem sending documents
charles - 4-4-2015 at 09:03

I have to send two documents as proof of identity, I scanned the docs. And put two
PDF icons on my desktop , then I dragged and dropped them onto an e mail.
The recipient said they could NOT open them and said could I send them in JPEG or
PDF, what am I doing Wrong.? ...confused2confused2confused2

1 Make a folder
2 Scan your docs
3 Save them as jpeg or Gif format
3 Copy and paste them into ready made folder then e-mail them and the recipient will get what he asked for. I hope this helps Charles waveysmiley

I'd be very wary about sending proof of identity over the internet.

Just right click on your desktop and a box appears in this it will say new, just click on new and another box will show, up at the top it will say folder just right click on this and a new folder appears on the desktop.
Right click the new folder and rename it to Documents or any other name that will show you whats in the folder.
Then right click on your saved j-pegs of gifs and press copy, open your new folder and paste them into it by using the mouse.
Then right click on the folder and send to Email recipient, then just address it to where you want to send your documents
hope this helps out

Come on ye Reds haha shocked_yellow
Or open your email and click on attachment and use your new folder as an attachment and send it off to its destination .:P

I think that you might actually be approaching it a**e about tit. In most email clients there is an icon like a paperclip to allow you to attach documents. So, open Outlook, Thunderbird, or whatever, look for the paperclip icon in the menu bar and click on that, it should then open an explorer window to allow you to browse to you documents in whatever format.

Be warned, though, some email servers tend to baulk at large files so be aware that you may need to reduce their size.

I'm with mary about sending such info over the 'net, too.

For my money, i. e., peace of mind, I think a fax is the safest way to send something like ID proof, etc.,. Since it's been a good long while since ANY PC vendor (at least here in the USA) included a fax card in their new desktop PCs, a good alternative is some commercial enterprise in your locale that offers a fax service. You will get a receipt for the fax (I think that's standard business practice).

FYI: Here in the USA all the local public libraries offer a fax service [don't know if the term "public library" is a universal term for a taxpayer funded facility for borrowing books, etc.,; + all ours also have free Internet service, i. e., BOTH wifi (yes a free hotspot) for bring your own digital device + in house terminals (NOT a huge number of them, but if you go at a "slow time", there is usually no waiting to get on one].
