Did you try sending via a web email like GMAIL?
When I try to send a picture from my desktop in an AOL e mail, nothing is sent. I attach it, by "choosing" it from the desktop list, but when I check to see if it sent properly, there is nothing there as an attachment.
Also, in trying again to send this picture, I put it in a word document, which I also chose from the list and attached it to my AOL e mail, but when the recipient received the e mail, and clicked on the attachment, nothing was there.
Can anyone explain what is going on?
