View Full Version : Windows Live Mail problem

02-12-2010, 10:49 AM
I've recently started using Windows Live Mail, and I'm quite pleased with it except for one thing: when I share pictures, I want my recipients to be able to download photos if they want to, and at the moment they can't. They get a link to SkyDrive (or whatever it's called) which enables them to view a slide-show of the photos I've 'sent', but when they try to download, they get a message telling them that access is denied.

I don't want the recipient to have to log into Windows Live in order to be able to download my photos, which presumably would be one solution. Is there some setting (possibly in Windows Live itself rather than WLM) that I haven't understood?

Why not just email the pics to them.

You gotta attach them as files rather than using the sharing feature.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. I wanted to use the slideshow option, and allow recipients to choose to download if they wanted. But it looks as if I can't have my cake and eat it too!

Exactly :)
