    Yahoo and graphics

    I have tried from time to time to copy a "jpg" or other format pic and past it in my Yahoo e-mail I'm composing. I can see it but others only get the dreaded "X".

    There is no option to "Insert Picture" as there are on some e-mail programs.

    Ant ideas?

    Here is one possible solution, if you want to insert pictures.
    Get YPOPS! and configure it to Outlook Express. Then you will have the emails on your hard drive and be able to use all the features of OE.

    Thanks, I'll check it out although I use ePrompter but don't use Outlook Express.

    Always thought I was asking for more trouble w/ viruses with OE.

    I am not typical, however after 3 years of OE, I have never opened a virus. Yes they come in and I delete them.

    But if it helps, according to the site, YPOPS! works with all these email clients:

    IncrediMail Xe
    Calypso 3.x
    Outlook 2003
    Mozilla Mail
    Outlook Express
    Outlook XP
    Forte Agent News/Mail Reader v1.93
    Outlook 2000
    Pegasus Mail 3.12c
    Eudora 5.x
    Lotus Notes R6
    Netscape Mail 4.x
    Outlook Express 6
    Opera M2

    I use Juno, Hotmail, Yahoo & Google. I would sure like to use one program like OE to view all my mail but I think ePrompter, so far, is the only utility that will allow me to see all my accounts (text only) and be able to Reply, Delete or Forward w/o having to go to the individual websites.
