IMPORTANT: File names should be accessible across platforms (works on Macs and PCs). All files should have a three letter file extension (such as .doc or .htm), which designates its file type. To prevent conflicts, file names should contain no spaces or special character except the underscore (_) and only one period before the file extension (ex: HomeWorkOne.doc).
Below the Message box, there should be an Add Attachments button.
Step 1: Click the Add Attachments button.
Step 2: In the Content Browser,click My Computer.
Step 3: Select a file on your computer and click Open.

Then instead of uploading from My Computer, you just select the files in My Files to add as your attachment(s). Reference the articles on Java and WebDAV in this knowledge base for further details.
The file(s) will be listed below the Add Attachments button. You can remove any attached files before posting the message by clicking the Remove icon to the right of that file.
Messages that have attachments show a paper clip image.
To view an attachment in a message, open the message and click on the link of the file name. For example:
