I use windows xp pro and outlook express for my email.

If i try to copy and paste and image into the body of the text while i type a message, as apposed to attaching the image i dont seem to have much luck?

So can anyone advise me if you can do this, that is copy then past an image, say a jpeg or gif for instance into the main text window?

I have tried the CTL + C key to copy then CTL + V to past the image with no luck?

Any help appreciated. :confused:

no matter the o/s version, I have not had much luck with cut & paste ... have you tried 'inserting' the image?
(Insert/Picture/Picture Source ... & it is helpful to fill out the "alternative text")

You pretty much have to go to New Message or mail and then click insert, and file attachment, then find the file and attachment and select it.

The only way a copy and paste to OE has worked for me is when coping from an IE window.

As MadDogMugsy suggests, Insert > Picture is your best bet.
