One way to share links to networked files
Authored by: palahala on Mar 23, '09 08:12:15AM

Not really easier, but Mail does seem to provide some support:

In Mail, while composing a message, choose Edit, Link, Add. Next, drag any file into the popup (you can also drag a proxy-icon from a window's title bar into that box). Finally, manually type "file://" in front of the URL (commonly yielding a total of 3 slashes, including the first slash of the path you've dragged into the popup).
