Is there a way to directly attach a bunch of files (JPEG images, if the type matters) from my account to an e-mail that I'm composing in Thunderbird?

Note that I don't want to hotlink to these files, I just want to send them as attachments in an e-mail.

For clarification, currently I accomplish this task in the following way:

  1. Download files (JPEG Images) from account to local machine.
  2. Fire-up e-mail Client (Thunderbird) and compose new message.
  3. Attach files from Step-1 to the new message and send it to intended recipients.

What I'm looking for is a tool/method/option that'll let me skip Step-1 entirely.

Why not use the client to keep your files synced locally? – Paul May 30 '12 at 14:07
@Paul: The problem that I'm facing is that I want to e-mail them to a friend, not use/view them on the local PC. So using the Box client is not an option – Bhargav Bhat May 31 '12 at 9:19
