What is the Mac equivalent of the file:// URL?

I want to look at some options that will help to manage the size of an Exchange mailbox. There are lots of utilities out there that will extract an attachment from an email and replace it with a file:// URL link.

"The following two outgoing email syntaxes should work for Mac recipients, even when the path or filename contains spaces.

\hostname\full%20path%20to%20file

or

smb://hostname/full%20path%20to%20file

Mac Mail will not convert the text into a blue link until after your message is sent. Remmeber to replace each space with %20 .

For sending to Windows recipients, this works:

<\hostname\full path to file>

But I have not found a single syntax that works for both kinds of recipients."
