Add attachments to HubSpot emails

Last updated: January 4, 2019

You can add document attachments to marketing emails and one-to-one emails in HubSpot.  

Marketing emails

To minimize the chance of being blocked by spam filters and to decrease the load time of your email, HubSpot does not allow you to directly attach a file to your marketing emails. Instead, you can upload the file, then link to it within your email. To do so:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Marketing > Email.
  • Click the name of an existing email in draft or create a new email
  • Select the text or image that you would like to link.
  • Click the link iconlink in the rich text toolbar.
  • Click the Link to dropdown menu and select File download
  • Click Select a file to choose a file from the file manager or upload a new one.
  • Once you've selected your file, click Add link

Your linked text will now load the document for your email recipient. You can also use a CTA to link directly to the document as well.

Sales emails

You can directly attach files in your one-to-one sales emails. Please keep in mind that there's a filze size limit of 10 MB for files attached to sales emails. To attach a file: 

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to your contacts. 
  • Click the name of the contact to whom you'd like to send the email. 
  • Click the Email tab at the top of the contact record. 
  • Compose your email and click the attachment icon. Select Upload to select a file from your computer or Choose from shared files to select a file from the file manager.

You can also attach a document to a sales email template using the documents tool. Learn more about using documents.
