E16: Attaches cross platform mac pc

QUESTION: If I have PC and my daughter has a Mac, can I still send her attachments?

ANSWER: Yes. It isn’t the kind of computer you have that matters with attachments. What matters is if you have the necessary software on your computer for your daughter to be able to open the attachment on her computer. (For example, if you send her a spreadsheet you created in Microsoft Excel, she needs Microsoft Excel on her computer to open and view that spreadsheet.)
