I'm trying to send emails with photos I want in specific locations of the body of email (I dragged into message fine) and
text - but they arrive to receipient with only either the photos and no text or only the text with photo at end of message - not where placed
What is the problem & what can I do to have results?

Sounds like a problem at the receiving end

do you know what email program the recipient is using?

If it happens to be a Windows email client, make sure you have "windows friendly" checked when you add the attachments.

re: have sent to my other email addresses on my own computer
by rosejoerg / August 5, 2009 4:05 PM PDT

Thanks for the reply, but so far to test I've sent it to myself at my own various email addresses (some are web-based) including a hotmail address: so I'm sending & receiving on a mac
When I've made & sent the same email from my web-based email (not Mail) it comes up exactly as layed out.
I need Mail or something similiar as a default mail server when I click on an address in the internet , as my webmail account cannot be accessed directly this way. Any other solutions? Is there a way to redownload a the Mail software for Tiger?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
