Question about images being sent within email?


S

Stu

I have sent email to folks from Outlook XP version with images within the email however when they receive the email there is no image. Even when I send to someone using MS Outlook Express. Could someone please explain why this is happening?

Thanks,

Stu

Because Outlook sucks in this department. You are obviously using RTF which
*only* Outlook can see.

If the Outlook Express users are telling you that the message size appears
to be the right size if an attachment was included, then check your message
format. Make sure it is set to HTML and possible consider disabling Word as
your e-mail editor. (All done under Tools | Options | Mail Format)

I went back and sent the same message with the image within the email using Outlook Express and the person receiving the email saw the image withing the email. So now I am convinced that Outlook has problems when it comes to sending email with images within the email. Now I know why otters who I have been sending emails can not view images within the email when I use Outlook XP. I wonder if Outlook 2003 is any better? So here you have a FREE email program that works better the the one that cost.

Sty

stu, if your message format is set to rich text format, then change it.
only microsoft outlook understands this format. outlook 98 and newer works
fine for embedded images in the body of the message when and only when
message format is set to html and word is disabled as the e-mail editor.

That's the conclusion I came to. It has a nifty calendar, though.

Neo,

Thanks for your reply. I have had it set to HTML all along and not using Word.
Only people who are able to view embedded images are those using Outlook and anyone using Outlook Express or other email programs are unable. I really believe now that Outlook Express is a better email program. It just does not have all the cool features as Outlook. It is pretty bad when the free one works better then the one you pay for.

Then something is causing the message to go out in a rich text format. Here
is a list of things to check since there has been no mention of what type of
account/server you are passing thru. (and this can be verified by the
outlook express recipient by looking at the source of the message. ask the
recipient if they see a reference to something called winmail.dat)

* Client side things....
- Open the contact record of the person you are trying to send a message
to. Double click on the email address and verify that it isn't set to
always send in Rich Text Format.
- Look for third party apps that sync with Outlook contacts. HP's data
sync program does something weird that always marks outgoing message as
Outlook Rich Text. Have not found a solution to this as of yet.

* Server side things....
- A Microsoft Exchange server can be configured to reformat all message to
Rich Text. Need to work with the Network gods to see if 1) can be overriden
from the client side or see if they will turn this option off. (the option
is off by default, but some sites turn it on.)

fwiw, i have been using outlook for many years. i will agree that outlook
express does some things better than outlook. but the same can be said for
outlook over outlook express.

When I Send e-mail to one particular person, the automatic spell
checker seems to have some problem it doesn't have with posts to
anyone else. The little envelope that replaces the hourglass comes
out, and it's usually several seconds before it starts checking the
post. It goes much more slowly through the entire spell check process
than it ever does with posts to anyone else.

Occasionally, it has frozen the computer. Using Ctrl-Alt-Del wouldn't
work, so manual rebooting was necessary.

The same thing happens whether I start the post as a New one, reply to
one of hers, or use "Send message to contact" from the contact list.

Recently, I sent this person a post which was 31 KB in size. It
bounced repeatedly. Finally, I broke it up into about six parts and
none of them bounced. I have sent her e-mail that was at least three
or four times that large in the past.

I have no idea if this occurrence is in any way related to the other
phenomenon, but if anyone can offer any clue or suggestion about why
this is happening, I'd very much appreciate it.

Emily
