Hi adamjedgar,
I can't answer your question regarding the dds files.  As for the part
about linking I'll assume you mean to show a link to an image/data
file.  That is done by uploading the file from your computer to a file
storage system that then provides a "link" to that file that others may
access & view.  There are many sites that offer this service.  Googleing
for "image hosting" will list several of them for you.

You then include the "link" in your message instead of the entire file
as an attachment (many lists don't allow attachments).
