When i try to send pictures it goes to outlook express--which I do not use because it does not work rt. When i try to email a picture it goes there and here is the error message

The host 'smpt' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop3', Server: 'smpt', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

Right click will not work unless you have set up Outlook Express. To avoid Outlook Express you will have to open your webmail (cogeco or hotmail) and then attach the picture there.

If you want to use an e-mail client but not Outlook Express then download something like Thunderbird or Live Mail but it is not practical to uninistall Outlook Express on Windows XP.

You can send using hotmail: To attach pictures in Hotmail, follow the below steps. Open your Hotmail account. Click the New Message link. Click the Attach and then File link. Click the Browse button and browse to the image you wish to attach. Keep in mind that you cannot select multiple files at once. However, you can individually add each of the images or attachments you wish to add. Click Ok or OK and Attach Another if you wish to do more than one image. If attached successfully, you should see a link with the attachment names in your e-mail. Once you're ready to send the message, click the Send button.

It will not go out from Kodak Picture gallery or from pictures unless you have an email client eg Outlook Express correctly set up to send e-mails. What is happening is that the right click send opens up your default e-mail client and it cannot possibly find the webmail (hotmail) account. Unless you are prepared to set up Outlook Express, or a replacement for it, then it will not work as you want.

You don't have to add any more e-mail accounts. You could try Windows Live Mail MS Support. Once you have set it up to send using your hotmail account and it is your default e-mail client then the right click should work.
