And for my next question - email

#1 Post by BikerGran » Thu Oct 31, 2013 8:43 pm

Using Outlook (not Outlook Express) for email now, and when someone sends an email with pictures in the text, I can't see them. They appear at the top as attachments, but I have to open each seperately and frankly, I can't be arsed!

There must be a setting I can change so I can see them in the text - anyone?

Depends on the format that the email has been sent as - plain text or rich text, I think they're attachments, HTML they'll be in the body of the text.

Check Tools/Options/Mail Format, been a while since I've used Outlook, but if there's anything you can do on your end, it'll be in there

if not its a security setting for download pictures with mail probably in options depends on version

Pretty sure support for Outlook express ended sometime ago, I've used Outlook 2010 and just upgraded to 2013 and its still not as good as Gmail etc.

If you need to use your hotmail account try Hotmail.com - live mail works pretty well, considering.

I don't have any problem forwarding stuff??

I use Gmail for the bike club but that's online - can I have Gmail on my home computer?

Gmail also comes as a stand alone app (like Outlook) but is better being used online as gmail.com

Any of the big providers EMail systems can be used online - I have Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo all running sometimes, without problem via Browser windows.

Good luck - Frank

I guess online email would be ok - I could still 'save' anything I need to my PC?

But I don't think my other half would get his head round it!
