W7 live problem when sending photos as an attachment

March 8, 2013 at 12:14:30
Specs: Windows 64
As many others are finding.....when sending photos with W7 live mail, the recipient sees that empty box with a small red star at the top. So, I instead send photos as 'an attachment' but after doing that, I am told the receiver of that attachment also sees the name and email of the person who had sent that photo to me! When I send it as an attachment, I don't see the sender's name or email nor any others.

Thank you for responding. I did exactly what was suggested. When I clicked on 'insert a single photo' it automatically goes to "Pictures Library', every time. Attempting to send as an 'attachment' does the same thing.....'Pictures Library'

Starting to look like there is no way around it, using WLM.

You may feel a repair will help, if you don't see the repair option, STOP.

Hi John I checked on those links. The photos I'm referring to are those where someone sends me either one picture or a group of pictures along with for example....: An article about something that includes a picture pertaining to that article OR someone will for example:..... will send me a number of photos within one email such as of animals. Those are the photos/pictures I cannot just 'forward', so I send those emails along with the pictures as an 'attachment'. That's when I've been told by the receiver that the person who sent that article with a picture/s to me, also includes the 'sender's' name and email. My first explanation may not have been explained sufficiently, sorry.

Hi again I must have just missed your list of suggestions, as above, but I am very hesitant attempting to do that as I am not a compute whiz, such as yourself but I do appreciate your attempts to help correct the problem. I think Microsoft has ruined that feature for many and probably will never correct this or any other problems they have created..

Yep, I see a lot of people on the previous links, have gone back to the 2010 version.

I google everything like crazy, not much more I can do at this stage. Best move for you now, is to get someone with higher skill levels to help.

'So, I instead send photos as 'an attachment' but after doing that, I am told the receiver of that attachment also sees the name and email of the person who had sent that photo to me!'

If you copy and paste the photos themselves into a new e-mail (presuming these pics are embedded in the e-mail) you will be able to send them without the other senders names, lists, etc. I do this all the time when forwarding mails to friends....thus removing all their e-mails.
If you are sending top more than one recipient you can send the forward to your address and then add the others as Bcc...that way no-one will see other addresses....

Thanks. I have tried to copy and paste other things and it never works. Either the 'copy' or 'paste' is gray or faint, so it can't be clicked on. This W7 is worthless and I bought it about 2 months ago. I had XP before and had no problems with sending or forwarding anything. With this, I can't even forward a website the easy way. The pictures I am trying to send are for example: an article with a picture OR a group of pictures of animals etc. but not pictures with a digital camera. These other type pictures are the ones that show the name and email of the person who sent that forward containing pictures to me. Hope it's not confusing as explained. Otherwise, I always use BCC for other forwards and have no problem because ALL emails are then eliminated...

Never thought that might help but not sure which one would be the best as there are so many. I will consider doing that, thanks again.

I clicked on Computing.net but hesitate in following through with those suggestions, only because I'm not a computer pro and I may make mistakes and possibly ruin everything. I will check out Firefox. I used to have Chrome, when I had XP and didn't like it. Thanks!

Firefox is OK - less snoopy and intrusive than Chrome. It also looks a lot like IE and can be uninstalled simply if you don't want to keep it permanently. You have no need to make it your default browser (unless you want to).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for the info, I will check out Firefox, and if that doesn't work regarding my problem of forwarding emails with forwarded internet pictures, I will have to give up trying.
