    I received an email with some great photos of China which I wanted to share with friends. I forwarded the email but several friends have advised that they received the text but no photos. I then tried to forward it to my Hotmail account and got the same result - no photos.

    I am running Windows XP, have McAfee firewall and Norton Anti Virus. I'm surprised if these are stopping the uploading of the pictures as they allowed the download (email). Any suggestions?

    Thanks Moby - I tried that but still the same result. I'm using Outlook Express. I've also just tried unchecking "Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail" ( in Tool >> Options) but that didn't fix the problem either.

    Try Tools>Options>Send tab>HTMLSettings and make sure send pictures with messages is checked.
