Windows LIve email does not send images

  Pentris 14:04 28 Dec 2009

I have just rebuilt my PC to Win 7 and overall it is very good. I have today discovered that it will not forward or send any images in with the text. It strips them out and leaves a white square with a red cross in a box. Normal attachments send ok.

your security setting is too high try lowering the level. Go to tools - options - security

This doesn't work. All security settings are as per the original install on default settings. I cannot find any way to send any images which makes the system useless to me. I need to be able to send screen dumps, pictures of spreadsheets etc for my work. Windows Live is nowhere near so good or flexible as Outlook.

I have absolutely no problem sending images with Live Mail.

Have you confirmed that the recipient is not receiving the image.

What is the file extension of the image files.

Go to Options > Send

Under mail Sending Format ensure the radio button is in HTML and then click 'HTML Settings..." Is there a tick in "Send pictures with messages"

The browser security has been optimized to Microsoft recommendations. HTML messages have send pictures checked by default. Is there a limit on size or type of picture? The one I am trying is only 94K and it reduces the email to 23k text only.

I have just sent and received a 700Kb picture with no problem. I have not adjusted any Live Mail settings, just running the defaults from installation.

I have turned W7 UAC down to the level 2 (if 1 is the bottom setting)

The UAC is on default setting. I have now tried Windows Live repair and still no luck. There is no Windows Live Help chat facility and getting to speak to a human engineer is impossible.

forget default setting - lower the security then reboot and try it. If still no joy then click on default settings.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Live Email. I now only have one problem email which I have deleted.

I too have no problem in sending images via Windows Live Mail.
