    Default Windows Live Mail sign in pop-up when Emailing Photos in Windows 7

    Exact same problem as in this thread, no one have answered it yet ...
    http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-...gn-pop-up.html

    Tried to send a photo from Windows 7 Explorer, selected the photo, clicked on the E-mail option on the tool bar ...

    W7 prompted to "size" the photo as expected, it then created a new email with the photo inserted inline (as an album?) instead of as an attachment like usual. Then the Windows Live sign up dialog box popped up. Without signing, the email get stuck in Outbox and will not go.

    This person never had a Hotmail nor MSN/Live email account and never encountered this until a recent fresh re-install of W7 and WLM.

    We made sure these two options were unticked

    * Automatically log on Windows Live messenger (Options - General)

    * Convert messages to photo emails when adding photos (Options - Compose)

    Lots of thread suggested to click on the "Stop Signing in" option under (Options - Connections),
    but this option is greyed out for some reason.

    Anyone has any ideas about this?

    You have to sign because it wants to store the photo on MS Skydrive.

    Another way to send them without having to log in is send them as an attachment. To do this save the photo to desktop or wherever then follow the procedure I mentioned.

    Yea we've had this a few times.
    Either bow down and create an account or start a new email and then add as an attachment from there rather.
