Email an Agrimaster File

Best practice is not to email files but to use File Manager and share files with other users/accountants or consultants. 

There are two ways to email your Agrimaster file to another user, including your accountant:

  • Sending automatically (if your email is configured correctly within windows)
  • Sending manually (if your email is not configured in windows or is not compatible)

If you have trouble emailing your file because it is too large then it may be worth considering shortening your file

Send Your File Manually

You can attach and send the Agrimaster backup file to your accountant using web based email. Start with the email instead of starting with the backup file.

  1. Create an email message addressed to your accountant (for email like Gmail)
  2. Look for the Attach File icon, a paperclip button inside your new email message
  3. Click the paperclip (Gmail shown in this example)
  4. Look at the left side of the Open window for ‘Computer’ or ‘This PC’

    Your window may look slightly different depending on your version of Windows

  5. Open the folders: This PC > Local Disk (C:) > Users > Public > Agrimaster > backup

    (You may see ‘the path’ C:\Users\Public\Agrimaster\backup)  

  6. Click on your file

    If you have more than 1 file in the backup folder, identify the file by the Date modified

  7. After the file is attached you may see your file name followed by .bca in the email

  8.  After the file has been attached, click Send
