    I am sure this must be simple!...I have XP Home, I am using Microsoft Outlook as my default email client. When I go into "My Pictures" and select a group of photo's to email, I then click on the left sided tool bar and press "Email this file", it then gives me the option to compress the size for email which is what I need as they are about 1MB each. But when it goes to attach the photo's it tries to open "hotmail" by opening the internet. I have tried everthing to resolve this. It's no good trying to attach them from Microsoft Outlook as it does not give me the option of resizing them. I have checked internet options and outlook is definately my default client. I also uninstalled MSN Explorer think it might have had something to do with it? I hope this makes sense. PLEASE HELP!!

    open Internet Explorer/ tools/ options/programs and check that outlook is selected in drop down list in email clients.

    Hotmail is always default unless changed

    Derek,

    I have tried that but for some strange reason it does not work. I have tried everything! Outlook is my defaut for everything else except when trying to attach a picture using this feature XP has of resizing the pics?
