View Full Version : Email pictures

29-03-2002, 10:37 PM
Using IE6 Outlook Express
In New Mail - Rich Text.
I Click Insert in Menu Bar
Boxes turn up for File Attach., Text, Horiz. Line, etc. but not for Picture - the box flashes on but will not hold.
Tried Start/settings/ Add Remove/Explorer/Repair - but no joy
Cannot even paste a picture into an email in any format.
No problem with MSWword or Publisher.

As far as I know, you can't insert pictures in new emails if the setting is Rich Text. It has to be set at HTML.

If you still can't insert pictures, try changing your security settings in Outlook Express down a level so they aren't on High Security.

ummmm i just looked at my copy of outlook express6 and it tells me that i have the options of 'plain text' or 'rich text (HTML)' The later is what should be used to send pictures as part of the message itself. To place a picture in the body of your message, click where you would want the pic to be, go to inert>picture, and select the picture from your files in the normal way. I recomend however sending pics as a file attachment. Allthough this is not as slick and impressive as embedded pics, it does mean that nomatter what email software is being used on the other end, it will be veiwable.
If this doesnt work, i give up!
