I have a new Toshiba laptop. Sitting next to my old desktop, the same email, with inline photos, has the photos appearing in the email on the desktop and are no where to be found in my email on my laptop. Help. I have no clue why. There isn't any link to locate them, no indication that they should be there other than the text that my friend typed to describe the photo.

For Candy Cole - try to config your email to show it as text instead of html. this should show an attachment at the bottom so you can open the image.
hi can u teach me how to send an email where the picture is inline. will this work on all address or will it still depend on the user's settings?
I have windows vista and windows mail how do I transfer a picture from e-mail to a picture file on my desktop I get pictures sent to me by phone and would like to save them with my other pictures
I need to send HTML emails with links and images. Is it possible to send so that the recipient is able to view the correct email layout even though images and links may be blocked for security purposes. I am not looking to spam, just want my propsects to be able to see the email complete
I have the opposite problem. I want to insert pictures and .gifs in-line when composing my Hotmail messages, and not as a list of attachments at the end of the message. Any help appreciated.
An incoming email has 5 photos attached. The 2 smaller ones open at the end of the email the other 3 I have to open individually. The difference seems to be related to the size. What can I change so that all photos open within the email?
I received an email with pitures in the body of the email. I can see the pictures but can not seem to save them. How can I save them to my pictures?
Ran into this problem again recently after having solved it a few years ago. Outlook 2003 has an obscure bug that causes this problem but there is a work around.
You must set up your Outlook email so that the setting in Tools>Options>E-Mail Options>On replies and forwards ... shows "Prefix each line ... message" (that's the last or bottom selection). Then the little windows to the right should now show indented paragraphs. When you do that, Outlook 2003 will display inline images in RECEIVED messages within the body of the email.
It has something to do with the "outbind:" vector pointer to images to include in messages to be SENT in the local program corrupting the inline image pointer for RECEIVED messages. The outbind pointer usually looks something like this "outbind://36/cid:343061215@10072010-2103" which is the vector that Outlook uses to include an image. Note though, this is not faithfully reproduced at the receiving end by all email programs. If you're having trouble seeing signature images the same bug will cause only a box to be seen in RECEIVED messages. In that case, a typical signature vector looks like this ... file:///C:/Program%20Files/Microsoft%20Office/sig001.jpg.
In all cases the data are sent OK but are mangled by Outlook on receive. If you want to know why this happens you need to talk to the Microsoft experts. From my understanding it's to do with a transmit setting overwriting a receive buffer pointer variable and nobody seems to have bothered to fix it on 2003.
Since I don't have 2007 I don't know if a similar setup works with that version, or the new online 2010 version.
