    Does anyone know how I can import clips, sounds, pictures, etc. into outgoing messages in Outlook Express from Microsoft Clip Gallery?

    when you are preparing outgoing mail ... you can use "insert" & also edit on the bottom of the page

    Savvy Lady,

    Thanks for your response, but I already know how to attach a file or picture to an email. What I am looking for is a way to INSERT a graphic, clipart or picture from the Microsoft Clip Gallery into the body of the message along with a sound (music) from the Clip Gallery as background sound for the message.

    that's exactly what SL was explaining - don't mix up the preview pane view (which will show you an attached pic) with an inserted pic - 2 different things

    in a new message
    insert
    picture
    - you get a dialogue box asking where it is, where you want it in the message etc
    do all that, press send

    go to your outbox
    there's the inserted pic, not an attachment, but in the body of the message
    click on it and the pic box placeholders show up, just like in word

    on your own for a sound file - you'd need html activated - as would the recipients, otherwise it won't work

    btw - beware of mail scanners and virus scanners that will defeat your efforts to have whatever sort of files included in your message

    rhj10, just for my own benefit, could you give me the path to the clip gallery?
