I sent two pictures from photobucket to a yahoo e mail account I have. I registered on photobucket last year. I used the email address that I give out to my family and close friends. When the images showed up on yahoo I forwarded them to a friend who also has Yahoo e- mail.. I took care to erase the email they originated from.

When my friend got the images he forwarded them to 15 of his contacts of which I am one of.

When I opened his e mail this morning there were 2 boxes with the images. If I click on the boxes the images will open.

Here is the problem. Below the boxes is another tab that says download all.

If I click on that, a window opens showing the images but it also says my documents, shared documents, etc;.

I don't want all these other people having that kind of access to my computer.

Are they getting the choice to open that tab also ?

Thanks for any help !

Those folders are on the local machine. When the recipients of the pictures get them, they will open the folders on their machine not yours.

Thanks for the reply Animal.

If I understand you correctly the tab that says download all only applies to my computer ?

The other recipients of the pictures have the same option but the download all option applies to there computer only, not mine ???


Thanks,


Dennis :)

PS: I cleaned the original post up a bit so it made a little more sense.

I am not sure what happened there. ??? Missing words, spelling outlandish, etc; .

Anyway, thanks again.

Thats correct, what ever options are shown when opening a mail with attachments only applies to the abilities of the machine they are displayed on.
