windows live sending multiple emails

Likes # 0

using windows 7 64bit sp1 with windows live mail, when I got the pc it didn't have an email program installed, it advised on downloading live mail which I did, recently I have been sending photos to family but they are claiming they are receiving multiple emails but are unable to view the photos, just the placeholder, I have looked through the setting but I must be missing something, I have downloaded incredimail 2.0 but for some reason that can't find my contacts, so if anybody can advise me I will appreciate it.

Hi difarn, sorry about the delay in replying, been experimenting with the various options, I have found that when I send a photo, for example a b&w photo of my late father in law which is a jpeg 62.2kb in size, it sends it as 13 separate pieces, occasionally it will tell me it wont send it because: An unknown error has occurred. Server Error: 554 Server Response: 554 suspicious message Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC6F Protocol: SMTP Port: 25

The error message may be because of anti-spam on live mail.

I can send my photos as an attachment in windows live rather than as a photo - this entails browsing to the photo on my pc and inserting it - and this works fine.

There is a programme called Windows Live Essentials Photo Gallery which you may have already installed on your PC - check by going to start and typing in "photo gallery" - if it is not there type in Windows Live Essentials and click on it - it will send you to a download site which explains the advantages of having this, including resizing of photos and being able to send e mails directly from there. This is the link

Forgot to mention that when I attach my photos as an attachment I make sure that I send as an attachment rather than clicking on the sky drive button - just need to check this. I have the option of resizing the photos if I want - there is a drop down box on the right hand side.

Glad to help even though the problem still occurs - many people are having many problems - the important thing is to send photos as attachments rather than using sky drive.

You can still download Windows Live 2009 - here is a link- many people have done this.

If you don't I have found this work-around - Right-click on the selected photos as usual, select send to mail recipient and re-size as wanted Once it comes up as a photo e-mail – here's the trick - hit view slideshow in the e-mail window A Photo album tools tab will now appear. Hit the format tab. Click on the paper-click (attachment) icon, and they will now be switched to attachments, at their re-sized resolutions
