Forwarding photos in Windows Live Mail

by gemeljackson / November 21, 2012 3:01 PM PST

I often receive emails with photos in the body of the email.
Sometimes I forward them on to other friends.
When I press SEND I get a message that ONE OR MORE OF THE PHOTOS WILL NOT BE SENT (something like that) and the recipient does NOT receive the photos in the body of the email but as an album and slide show option.
Can anyone help me correct this problem which just started by itself (seemingly) a few months ago.

What email are you using?

It would help in answering you if you'd tell us what you're using for email. However, I can tell you my solution is to save that photo on my hard drive somewhere and then attach it to the forwarded email.

Good luck.

I'm using Windows 7 Live Mail

Thanks for your reply. I'm using Windows 7 Live Mail. The type of email I'm writing about is the one where there are photos with captions or text written with them. If I could, I'd forward one to you so you could see what type I mean.

WLM is what I use too

No need to forward, I've seen this with WLM, and like I say I just save the photo in a temporary place on the C: drive before forwarding, then attach it. That's always worked for me. WLM is quirky about forwarding photos. I use it and like it, but it's certainly got its quirks, especially when it comes to forwarding pictures.

Good luck.

WLM Quirks

I tried your suggestion with an email with several photos and text in the body of the email and only one picture went with the email. I did have success however by Copying and Pasting the entire photos and text into a new email. Thanks for making me think outside the square.
