i just tried snding a couple of pics using outlook express, instead of being an attachment they ended up very large in the body part of the mail filling the screen, how can i change this please? XP pro sp3
You'll need to make an adjustment in the registry - make sure you back up before starting
Disable inline images
Are you inserting them as a picture or an attachment? If you use 'Insert' > 'Picture' the picture will appear in the body of the mail. Rather insert the image file as a 'File attachment'.
thanks so far, i am a bit reluctant to meddle with the registry,insert appears the only option in a new mail
What beeuuem suggests should work, but if you are still having probs, in the new mail message window, change the Format of the email to Plain Text (go to Format menu and click Plain Text).
Or permanently change all new mails to Plain Text, in the main OE windows, Tools, Options, Send tab and change Mail Sending Format to Plain Text.
my thanks i have followed this but i do not still get the option to attach a pic it still says insert?
The menu says Insert but the options include File Attachment and Picture. The first will attach the file, and the second will place the image in the body of the mail.
Insert menu in OE
i dont seem to have the same outlook express as shown in the pic and none of the options either
That's Outlook Express 6 - which was the standard for several years until replaced by Windows Mail. Which menus do you have across the top of a new email window? Should be
File Edit View Insert Format Tools Message Help
that is what i have but it does not look the same or it would seem act
I'm not quite sure if you're saying you don't have any menus - or different menus. Where are you finding the Insert command?
