Outlook Express. Sending photo's

  eric35 11:18 31 Dec 2006

When I send photo's or graphics via email, the receiver gets pages ad pages of script, (no pictures). Photo's are sent as JPEG using HTML.
I have Norton AntiVirus installed.
I have no problem with sending text emails.
Can anyone help me solve this problem?

Make sure the images are of a suitable size to send. This usually means reducing the image size.
A useful item for this is 'Shrinkpic' this is a program that run in the background and automatically copies/resizes/ and adds to your mail painlessly without any interference on your part.[click here]
You could so take a look into image hosting

you could try and use picasa 2 which is free i find this a great way to send pics as it does the down sizing for you

Another great tool is mailbigfile.com click here

Stick all your photos in a zip file and send them using this. Works a treat.

It should get round the problem you are having - just make sure the recipient is happy to download a file as large as you create though (shouldn't be a problem on broadband, but dialup could take a while).

Asfar as i can remember most receivers have the same problem ie, they receive only pages of gobbledygook. Always people who have AOL as their server. I have used HP Photo Imaging Software sending photo's via the email portal, but this too now gives the same problem. Any help would be appreciated.
