comment Formal “attaching to the e-mail” in German
I hope I do not confuse you totally if I offer another grammatical construction that is very similar to the first: "Meinen Lebenslauf hänge ich dieser E-Mail an." This has E-Mail in the genitive case and skips the preposition "an" (because "anhängen" can be used both ways.)

Note that "Mein Lebenslauf" is nominative; in the first example, the Lebenslauf is the object (which is BEING attached) and you need the accusative "Meinen Lebenslauf...". Also, you got the gender and grammatical case of E-Mail wrong. "Anhängen an" needs dative and E-Mail is feminine, that means "diese E-Mail". (Thanks Oguk)

@a-herrmann It is spelled "E-Mail" (big M). And actually I wouldn't recommend to say "hinzufügen" instead of "anhängen". Anhängen is exactly the right term for this and is definitely preferred. 5pike's answer has another idiomatic (and completely correct) solution.

comment How do you say that you're 'high' (from smoking marijuana) in German?
"Straff sein" is a wide-spread term at least in Berlin (very informal).
