"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

your choice as attachments or inline with the email.. if the file selector only allows 1 then do it 9 more times

nobus, nobus ... you're pulling our collective chains, right?


Per the Mozilla Thunderbird support page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-use-attachments

How to Add Attachments to a Message

  •    Compose a new message.
  •    Click on Attach.
  •    Browse to the location of the file you would like to attach.
  •    Select the desired file and click Open.
  •    Repeat until all the desired files are added.


Alternatively, zip them into a single zip file, and send the zip file.

nobus, you can tack on as many attachments as you want to a single message per the above:

Repeat until all the desired files are added.

Alternatively, zip them into a single zip file, and send the zip file.

Is there something we're missing?  Because from here it looks like either of those is the solution you requested.

In the attach dialog, use the standard Windows keys for multiple file selection , i.e., Ctrl and Shift. Then click the Open button in that dialog. That will attach all of the selected files in one go. Regards, Joe

You're welcome, nobus, glad to know that it's solved...and glad to see that Thunderbird is working out well for you. Cheers, Joe

Yes, lots of discussion that the new closing process needs improvement...EE is working on it. In this case, Click Report Question (underneath the question) and ask for it to be re-opened, then re-close it as you wish. Regards, Joe

the more they work on it - the less easy it becomes  -  is my impression

Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
Yes, that's the impression of many folks, but in EE's defense, they tried to fix the problem of the Mods having to "field the daily complaints on the question closure system" (that's a Craig Kehler quote). The fix, however, seems to have made things worse, but EE is well aware of it and I'm sure will be trying another fix in the not-too-distance future...and this time, probably with more testing/QA before rolling it out. Regards, Joe

It ain't about getting points, it's about finding a solution.  No issue with the closure from where I stand.
