    Hi. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me how to send files in an email as jpeg files and not zip files. I'm sending from AOL and when I attach files to the email it's
    sent as a zip file. How can I ensure they don't send as zip files?
    Thank you so much.

    I don't (read as---wouldn't for all the money in the world) use AOHELL so this is just a stab in the dark; when you browse for the file you wish to attach, can you put the WHOLE file name -including extension- in "file name" line and then enclose it in quotes??? In many applications this will over-ride other "defaults" like zipping or changing the extension.
    Don't expect too much, like I said just a WA guess.

    You can't

    AOhell prevent sending any attachments unless they are zipped

    Aohell seem to have a strange idea that zipped files cannot carry viruses and all othe rfile types can

    There may well be a work around somewhere, but all the aol users I know have the same problem. Also the aol tendancy to corrupt and reduce all images on websites is another AOL speciality
