Forwarding Pictures with emails problem

  User-54B94A8E-8293-4ADE-9AB078E114526AEB 16:51 12 Jul 2007

Although I am able to attach pictures to emails with no difficulty, if I forward a picture it is replaced by a rectangle and small square with a red 'X'.
Advice would be appreciated
Thankyou - Wol

I suspect this is am anti spam feature. Usually you have to click on the red x to open the picture if you know the sender. Spammers use pictures to send unwanted stuff. Most of my spam has pictures in the body of the message to avoid mail rules - if anyone knows how to write a rule on Outlook Express to block such pictures I'd be grateful.

My problem is when forwarding emails on with previously received pictures etc. These have all been virus checked incoming as are my outgoing messages.

I think the only answer is to save the pix in My Pictures and then Insert them as files onto the e mail or as pictures. A bit cumbersome I know but it works. JB

Where are the pictures coming from that you are forwarding. Americans tend to use Microsoft Powerpoint, so who ever you send them to also has to have Power Point viewer.

Pamy, Thanks for that but the rectangle & 'X' replaces the images in my outgoing message as seen in 'sent' messages!

OK, does this happen if you send a picture that you have produced?

Have you tried to highlite pics, r/click, send to, mail recipient, insert addie.

Pamy, Pictures I have produced are sent with no problem.

gudda96, Thanks for the suggestion, please could you interpret " addie " ?

Like leccie is electricity, so addie is address

So if your own pictures are sent OK then you can send one to yourself, then try and forward that e-mail to yourself to see what happens.
