Hi all.

 

When I send a JPEG photo using W7 default email, being Windows Live Mail, it never sends.

 

But it appears in my 'sent items' folder as being sent.

 

It is not an issue concerning size, as I use the default method, ie, right clicking on the photo, then 'send to Mail recipient' then it converts the photo from 1.2 MB (or whatever) to around 230 KB - so that's not an issue.

 

Also, I have no problem in sending anything else, ie, I sent an 8.7 MB pdf doc from it with no problem.

 

And I have no problem in recieving anything else - I sent a total of 12 photos to it from another computer in one hit, and they all got through. So it seems that it isn't an ISP restriction of size issue, either.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

JA

I never used Windows Live Mail but have you tried sending the photo and any other item after archiving them with Zip archive.

No, I haven't. I wouldn't know how, and I shouldn't have to do this with every pic anyway. There's got to be another problem.

I believe that Windows Live Mail is no longer supported, Worth A Read .

 

You might consider a different email client.

I've been using Windows Live Mail since Windows 7 first came out with everything from Vista to 10 and never had this problem.  You could always try Thunderbird, but it sounds to me like you need to scan for malware with MalwareBytes.  

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

how are you sending a photo? Attaching it or embedding it? My guess would be something wrong with the HTML formatter.
