E-mail sends random photos not intended to be sent

    When I send an e-mail with a photo, Outlook sends the photo that I intended (as it should), BUT then it adds an attachment that includes random photos that I have previously sent to others.

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to how it selects the photos that it wrongly sends. I do nothing to prompt it to send these random photos.

    If it doesn't add an attachment, then it adds these random photos to the forward and back buttons on the bottom of the photo that I intended to send. If the recipient clicks on the forward or back buttons, then they have access to these random photos.

    This has been going on for years. I don't send too many photos so I never took the time to check out a solution. I use Outlook almost 24/7 in my business and I have no other problems with any other aspect of Outlook. I have been using Outlook for many years.

    Thanks for any help you can provide. al2

    You may want to first check your Signature settings in Outlook. Looks like some html code with a link to a photo album is getting embedded to each email. Try sending a plain text mail and see how it looks. Also send one to yourself and see how you receive.
