Description:

Super simple service menu that allows you to send one or more selected files from Konqueror or Dolphin as a Kmail attachment. That's all it does, and that's probably all it ever should do :)

I'm not sure is this a distro-specific, but in Mandriva I already have sendmail.desktop file located at /usr/share/kde4/services. The difference is that it couldn't send multiple files. So, Mandriva users could just replace an [Exec] string with the provided solution.
(You will need root access for this)

Thanks, it's really a nice and useful hack.

I can't believe this isn't included "out of the box".

I'm not sure where it got lost in the shuffle. Service menus are underrated in how much they change usability.

Seconded, this should be a standard feature.

Excellent enhancement, thanks.

(First, sorry for my doublepost.)

I made some changes to your ServiceMenu and now it can attach several files.

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
Actions=openKmailAttachment;
Encoding=UTF-8
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin,all/allfiles
ExcludeServiceTypes=application/x-iso,kdedevice/*,inode/directory

[Desktop Action openKmailAttachment]
Exec=kmail --composer --attach %F `echo attachment=\'file://%F\' | sed 's/ \//,file:\/\/\//g'`
Name=Send File As Attachment
Name[sk]=Poslať e-mailom
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=desktop_kdebase
Icon=kmail

Great,
this is what I've been looking for!

Please let me describe how I installed it on Kubuntu 10.04 (probably the same way on other KDE distributions):

1. Go to /home/my_name/.kde/share/kde4/services/
2. Create empty text file "SendAttach.desktop" or similar name with extension .desktop
4. Copy text from yours Service menu and Paste it to this file.
5. Start Dolphin and use it !-)

Thank you very much.
