    I am not sure if my post should be here or in XP area.
    My problem is this...........When I want to e-mail someone a picture,I right click the pic,
    send to mail recipient,and then given the option to resize the pic. I usally resize the pic and hit ok. From there it should be attached to an e-mail I wish to create. But this does not happen.I must drop and drag the picture into the e-mail.

    Thank-you in advance for any and all responses.

    P.S. - I just found out that I can not "send to mail recipient" any type of file.Not just my pictures.

    If the "make my pictures smaller" feature has dissappeared try this:

    Click start then run then type in REGSVR32 SHIMGVW.DLL then click ok ( be sure to leave a space between *32 and SHIM*. a box will come up with
    DllRegisterServer in SHIMGVW.DLL succeeded. Then reboot your computer and it should be OK.

    But,
    This suggests your problem might be a bit more involved.

    Is Outlook Express set as your default e-mail handler?

    Why send a pic as an attachment. I use the insert "insert picture" option. Maybe you can do that assuming your mail client is OE.

    Outlook Express is my default e-mail handler.
    The pictures that I want to send are quite large.....so I like the option of changing the size before sending. Does "insert picture" gives you that option to reduce the size before sending?

    No and i don't know the size limit for that option right now. Tri one and see if it will send.

    In body of email click insert pic" icon next to the end after "create hyperlink>browse>find it on your HD>open>ok. It will appear in your email to send.

    Are you saying that you do not see that option when you right click on a file (not a shortcut) on your desktop (see attached picture) or that nothing happens when you do select that option?
