Publisher's description of gAttach
gAttach allows you to easily attach files to new messages in Gmail or Google Apps Mail. All the features available in Windows that were once only available to your desktop mail-using friends are now available to all Gmail users. With gAttach!, you can: send emails directly from: Windows Explorer, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox; automatically attach files from your PC to a new email without manually uploading each file; choose to suppress the annoying standard text provided by Windows ("Your attachments are ready to send.."); handle "mailto" email links in web pages.
Doing for Gmail what the MailTo link does for Outlook, the wonderfully simple gAttach is a small utility that reassigns Gmail as the default mail account from Windows documents. With gAttach installed, selecting Send from Windows Explorer, Firefox, and Microsoft Office automatically attaches the files to a Gmail composition instead of opening Outlook mail. Though effortless, we wish we could associate some file types with gAttach and let others default to Outlook. Also missing is a way for gAttach to automatically divide, where possible, e-mail compositions that breach the 20MB upload limit.
