Read your post. All that is known is.
1. The OS (Windows ME)
2. Email has no picture or attachment.
No mention of what email software is used or if you tried a Yahoo email or such. I can't help due to lack of information. Anything would be a guess.
Recently, a friend e-mailed me some photos, but I did not receive them. She e-mailed the same photos to other friends and they received them ok, but I only received the text which accompanied them. I have had no problems receiving photos in the past. I sent some photos to myself (via different e-mail accounts) and that worked fine. The problem is fairly recent (the last week or so) and I have no idea what could have caused it. Can anyone help?
