I am usually confused if I am going to use 入れます or 付けます when specifying that I attached something to the email.

For example:




I would usually say that I am usually trying to say that the assigned task is finished the finished output is attached to the mail. Is it more natural to say 付け (attached) or 入れ (in the mail)?

Besides your point, the two sentences are ungrammatical. 1. You can't use for the object in this case. 2. It is not clear what role 添付に is playing. – user458 Feb 21 '12 at 5:39
Yeah, maybe s/he tried to say 最新の帳票サンプルが添付ファイルに入っています/ 最新の帳票サンプルが添付ファイルに付けてあります。(but these are still unnatural, no...?) – user1016 Feb 21 '12 at 5:46
@sawa Ok. Correcting the grammar of sample sentence. – Nap Feb 21 '12 at 5:49

I think we usually use the verb '[添付]{てんぷ}する'.
Or maybe you could say
~を添付ファイルにて送信させていただきます。/~を添付ファイルで送らせていただきます。/~を添付ファイルにて送信させていただきますのでご確認ください。(Hmm, too polite?)

+1 Can never learn something too polite, all depends on who you're emailing :D – crunchyt Feb 22 '12 at 3:00
@crunchyt-san Ah good to hear that, thanks. Yeah most of my examples above might be good for business use. – user1016 Feb 22 '12 at 8:24
What happened to 添付いたします? – Bathrobe Feb 22 '12 at 10:07
@Bathrobe-san, Oh yes you're right. Then 添付いたしております will also work, no? – user1016 Feb 22 '12 at 10:42
