Cannot send pictures

  donmac47 21:15 08 Apr 09

I have a hotmail address and my broadband provider is Sky. I send my e-mails using Windows Live Mail. When I forward an e-mail with a picture (not an attachment) in the message the picture doesn't go with the message and the recipient sees a blank box with a red x in thr top right corner. Cilcking on the x has no effect.

Can someone tell me how to rectify this?

Is it just the one person?If so the problem may be at their end.

What happens if you Email them as an attachment?

What happens if you send the same thing to yourself?

Sorry don't know how. Many of the pictures are integrated within the e-mail.

The option to use HTML Format for your emails should be found within your email program. I can't offer exact instructions because I only use Incredimail for my emails. Probably under Tools ???

PS - maybe I worded my first response wrong - I did not mean to make your pictures HTML - but your emails should be in HTML Format, as opposed to Plain Text.
