Businesses often use templates for the footers or disclaimers they include in the email messages they send for business purposes. In specific scenarios, businesses want to make sure that additional attachments, such as terms and conditions for sales scenarios, are included with every email message sent to customers.

When you send an email for a scenario where you defined default attachments, they're automatically inserted in a draft email message for such a scenario. In our example, the sales quote email scenario has a default terms and conditions attachment defined by turning on the Attach by Default toggle.
