SendTo Mail is working but only allows 1 file

Microsoft Windows 7 home premium

Specs: Windows 7
With much research now have the SendTo Mail Recipient working (Windows 7, Outlook 2007),. I created the suggested shortcut in the SendTo folder as suggested in postings on this site - adding /c ipm.note to the path.
I can use the SendTo for single files but it is not working for multiple files or pictures. If you click on 2 or more pictures you get an error message - cannot start microsoft outlook. the command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM SO THAT YOU CAN SEND MULTIPLE PICTURES?
THANKS

Have you tried zipping the pics and sending them that way? You only need one file for that

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

That doesn't work either.
The other issue is that now that the shortcut allows me to send one file, it doesn't give me the option along the route to make the picture smaller. That feature is missing too.
So I can send 1 file now using the SendTo Mail recipient but it won't give me the option to downsize the file, and it won't allow me to send a zipped file or multiple files.
Maybe the /c ipm.note was not sufficient.

To send multiple pictures hold down the Ctrl key and hilite all the pictures you wish to send then right click any hilited picture and proceed as before.


Edited to add: The link below has a possible fix for XP but I don't know if it would work for Windows 7.

Why don't the Resize Pictures dialog appear while sending picture to e-mail?

Yes, I know to hold the control key down for multiple files.
The outlook window doesn' t open when I do that.
The resize window that prompts you doesn't open at all when the shortcut was loaded into the SedTo folder

Also, in Windows 7 there is no Start Run. Does anyone know where that is so that I can try this?
