A neighbour has tried to send about 18 huge photos by email all at once (each one around 12Mb !!)Consequentally, his OE is stuffed and not responding at all. He then tried a second time. Is it possible to uninstall OE or unstuff it. There must be around 400Mb stuck in his Outbox!!!
We have tried deleting from the Outbox of course, but thanks for the idea. It is such a huge memory task that OE will not respond. My friend has no idea about sizes of photos from digital cameras and thought they were all the same.
Thanks beeuuem, That is exactly what fixed it! I had to go into Safe Mode but when I deleted the 120 GB of content (!!!) everything freed up Many thanks indeed! He won't be trying to send huge photos ever again!
If he is using XP - he can resize the pics. for e-mailing without resorting to 3rd party s/ware.
In Windows explorer select the pic(s) to be sent and right click. Then select "send to" and "mail recipient". He will then get a wizard pop up with the option to make the pic(s) smaller. If he selects "show more options", he will then be able to select the size to send.
