Photo Via E-Mail

I know how to send a photo as an attachment but would like to know how to send a photo in the body of the message.

Thanks in advance.

DC, Copy and Paste...

First, depending on the e-mail program, (This works in Outlook Express and Outlook) you'll usually need to send the message in HTML format. (Most "text only" messages won't embed the picture.) Next, I open the picture in a program such as Internet Explorer, or something else from which you can RIGHT click and choose "Copy". Now, place the cursor in the body of the message and RIGHT click on the body of the mail message, choose "Paste".

Hope this helps.

Or another method that I use

This is for Outlook Express. As Grif said in his post, the e-mail has to be set to send in HTML format, on the top of the e-mail you are sending, click on "insert/picture". A popup will come up and you just navigate to whatever folder has the picture in it and follow the prompts. It takes less time than it sounds. You have to click your mouse once in the body of the e-mail though first or the "picture" portion of "insert" will be greyed out.

Thanks Roddy and Grif

I've got it now. The missing piece was "HTML". I was sending "Text Only". As soon as I changed that setting both of your suggestions worked fine.
