E-mailing black&white photos

  Nightryder 19:05 14 Dec 2003

I have had 2 people recently try repeatedly to send me black & white photos as an e-mail attatchment they scan fine but will not come thru
with the e-mail, does anyone have any idea why??

If they are attachments, you need to click on the paperclip Icon then choose open or save.

Is Outlook Express giving you a message that it has removed the attachments, Nightryder? If so, go to (in OE) Tools > Options > Security tab and untick the option which says "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that potentially be a virus".

There is no paper clip, no message, no nothing,
just the written e-mail, I can receive any other photo attatchments without any problems, what is so different about black& white? the sender even tried scanning the photos in colour (which improved the quality)but they still will not send.

Looks like your going to have to buy a black and white computer.

Kidding of course. Makes no difference if its monochrome or colour.....

Which browser are you using?

Nightryder, just reading both your post again and it seems as though you can receive attachments OK. Then you say "They will not send" It may be that the person sending them to you is not attaching them correctly in the first place.

Djohn's suggestion is the only one I can come up with also. Maybe the sender has a limit on the size of file they can send. Get them to (as a test) reduce the file size first (maybe to about 100k)then try sending.

Agree, scanned images can be on the large size.

Im using IE6, the photos are very small & scanned are only a small file.

Refer back to Djohn's last post, in that case, Nightryder.
