I have tried 5 times to send an e-mail with a photo in it but each time outlook express comes up with a failure message .

Can you post the exact error message please?

it could be because the attachment is too large.

try tools/accounts/mail/properties/advanced and tick the box that says break apart messages larger than xxx

who is your isp? check the smtp and pop settings are correct in tools/accounts/mail/properties/server.

and stick to one posting it gets confusing otherwise.

Do you get this message if you send an e-mail without photo attached?

You need to check your account settings are correct in Outlook Express for sending mail

If I check the account settings in Outlook express, how would I know whether they are right or not.My isp is AOL if thats any help.

Only you will know, if you wrote the settings down when you joined AOL. I am not shure if Outlook Express will work to send AOL e-mail
