Mac Mail - insert internal link to file instead of file itself

Client has requested that they should have the option of installing the path to a file in Mac Mail instead of the file itself. They have an Apple File Server.

A similar option exists in Outlook.

Can anyone suggest a simple method or Apple tool please. Prefer no third party.

In order to use hyperlinks, you first have to make sure the MacMail is set to send mail in Rich Text, not Plain Text:

In Mail, pull down the  "File" menu and then select "Mail Preferences" from the available options. When a menu appears, click the "Composing" tab and make sure you have "Rich text" selected. The "Rich text" option allows you to add hyperlinks to your email in addition to plain text.

To insert the Hyperlink:

While writing an email, click the "Edit" option from the top of the screen and select "Add Hyperlink."

A text box will open asking you to type the URL of the file you want to link. To save typing the URL, simply drag and drop the file you want to link into the text box and the URL will be typed automatically.

This works but does not allow you to proceed if you only drag a file. I don't want a web link.

I ended up engaging a developer who made this for me.
