cannot email photo

A friend received a new sony cybershot camera. I helped her get the photos onto her computer and they can be found in My Pictures.
When right clicking on a photo, choosing 'sent to' and 'mail recipient' and error message appears that the host 'smpt' cannot be found.
What is she doing wrong?
Her operating system is Win XP

Hi, Tufenof

thanks ever so much for your prompt answer and especially the great link!
I'll try to get my friend to follow the instructions I found. Hope that she hasn't gotten too discouraged; if so, I'll show her how.
