    Rather than downloading an attachment, is there a way to include a 'hyperlink' to a file on our computer system?

    Without uplaoding a file.  Type an address to a drive/folder/document on our internal server that we can 'hyperlink' to.  Thus, eliminating the need to download the document which is already saved.

    Hi there!

    You can't do that. Your local machine is not accesible to others and even if it was, they would still need to download it to see that content. That's just how the internet works, publicly acccesible computers speaking to each other. So technically you would still be uploading a document.
