Send your document via email as a PDF attachment

DocHub provides you with several options for sharing your PDF documents including two ways to send your documents via email as a PDF attachment. Here's how:

  1. Open your document. 
  2. Click on the Share or Send Dochub_UI_-_Share_or_Send_button.png button in the upper right corner.
  3. Choose 'Send as Attachment'.
  4. Fill out the To: field and use commas to separate multiple email addresses.
  5. Customize the email text or PDF options as needed
  6. Choose between the following two options




Send via DocHub 

This will email your PDF attachment from with your email set as the Reply-To address.

The size limit for emailing documents in DocHub is currently 10 MB which includes both the size of the attachment plus the email itself.

To view a list of all of the documents you've emailed including the recipient's email address and customize your email footer that gets inserted at the bottom of all emails you send via DocHub, you can go to


Attach to Draft in Gmail

DocHub will create a new Gmail draft for you with your PDF(s) attached.

This method also supports sending multiple PDF attachments in a single email using your Gmail account if you select them in your DocHub Dashboard and then click the envelope icon at the top of the list. This does require that your DocHub account be connected to your Google account.  


If your pop-up blocker is disabled, you'll be automatically taken to your new draft in Gmail where you just need to add recipients and send, but for most people whose pop-up blocker is turned on, you'll need to navigate manually to your Gmail Drafts folder to finish and send it.

PDF Options (Pro only)

If you have DocHub Pro, you'll be able to choose from these options before sending:



  • Flatten fields (for PDF forms only)-  locks all of the form fields and embeds them into the PDF as permanent text.
  • Rasterize pages - Renders any embedded page content such as text into images that can't be copied later.


  • Certify document - Embeds an Adobe compliant digital signature that certifies the creator of any signatures in your document and assures the document has not been altered after signing.


  • Password protect - add password encryption to your downloaded PDF.
