I am trying to forward an email with photo's that I received from a friend.
I am using Win 7 and windows live mail 2011. I tried sending it as a gmail and as a hotmail and as a Verizon email. All do the same thing.
I get an error message that says "one or more of the pictures cannot be found do you want to send the message anyway"

If anyone has the answer to this I would be thankful.

That's normal :), been that way for years (at least, since Win 9x).

The link to pics gets broken, thus they don't get sent when forwarding.

It's the fact that you are forwarding...that's the problem. If you insert/attach the pics in an email without formwarding...and send it...they will go.

If you send them, the recipient will probably see the routine red X phenomenon.

I see that at the other web site where you posted this it is marked resolved. Were you able to save the photos to My Pictures or in a file and then add them as an attachment in an e-mail?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hamluis has a point about just saving the pics and then sending them in a fresh email instead of forwarding them. You might also just compress them in a .zip file. It's also easier to send them that way and ensures that they stay together.
