Email problem

Postby Bus Driver » Sat May 18, 2013 5:56 pm

Windows Live Mail. Windows 7.
Friends will send me photos and cartoons. I hit FORWARD, clear the previous address history, select my recipient, and hit SEND. Message pops up that one or more of the pictures cannot be found and will not be seen by the recipient-- do I want to continue?
Am I to assume that Microsoft built in some kind of copyright protection/limitations that causes this problem? How can I simply forward messages intact if I wish to do so?

I posted the above to another forum devoted to computers. The answers were not encouraging. What are your comments?

I don't know the cause but I have received emails with just a box and no picture.

I do not know about about MS, but many companies and servers are building in the copyright protection. The data that the image is written in will have a code indicating the image is copyrighted, and they know not to forward it. I am seeing the empty boxes Beaconlight mentioned more and more on forwarded emails I have received. When you run into that the only way I know of is to save the image to your pc, then send it as an attachment to whoever you want to send it to. Many companies servers have software that blocks all images other than those having embedded codes indicating it originated internally within the company even.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Good to know. I thought I had friends that didn't know how to forward the pics with the message. They probably think the same of me. :oops:
