Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I've had e-mails sent to me from persons who use Yahoo.com as their ISP. I have Windows 98 and use AOL version 5.0. I am often not able to view their
attached pictures. When I asked AOL about this, I was told that the pictures are "embedded" and I would need to go to www.aol.com and access my e-mail in this rounabout way. I was able to do this, but recently those pictures came up blurry and looking similar to a picture that is colored by the numbers with crayons, and out of focus.
Could these people not send the pictures as an attachment JPEG file instead? Or how can I get those pictures on my screen into clearer focus?
Yes, I'd ask the people to send as attachments instead. It is possible, I just sent one to myself.
read the article on not receiving pictures in email.Could you help me, since I am not getting html's that I signed up for. I get them when I press the "forward" button, but not in my regular email box on Outlook Express. Thanks Miss Jody Mueller
Not sure what you mean by "not getting HTMLs that you signed up for". Can you elaborate?
I guess I'm confused. I can receive the pictures and cartoons. I can send as attachments and they are delivered. But if I simply "forward", nothing goes through other than text. Can I change my settings to avoid this problem? If so, how?
What email program do you use?
When my Daughter sends pictyres of grandkids I can send them and the e-mail picks up the picture -when i get e-mail with pictures of soldiers in war i forward the e-mail the pictures does not show up a square with a x is all that is forward.Please let me know what i need to do.
I'm not *exactly* sure what scenario you're describing. Can you be more specific about what works and what doesn't, and include whether or not the pictures show up in the body of the message, or as attachments.
For what it's worth, sending pictures as attachments typically works the best. In-line pictures are error prone for several reasons. If you receive them as in-line, ask your daughter to send them as attachments instead.
In Outlook Office XP, I can't see embedded images in emails when I open them or in the preview pane instead I see the red x, however, if I forwared the same email with an embedded image, I can see the image.
Thanks for your help.
i have outlook office xp too, and when i receice emails with embedded pictures etc, it only shows the link. i am sure it is set as html since i get different fonts and colors? also it seems the layout is all messed up...
i went to tools/options/ and looked for mailformat but it seems it disappeared.
when i get an attachment it says in the previewpane (which i had to download since this version didnt have it): >
i have to open the email in order to open the file.
