Images in emails


[link to this post]
 
I run XP, fully up to date and suddenly cannot insert images in emails whereas before, no problem.

OE is set to HTML with the 'send pictures' option set, I can attach images but not insert anything. I have re-installed IE8, scanned for viruses, tried disabling AV (latest Avast) but no go.

I should have mentioned that when I select Insert/Picture when creating an email this brings up a 'Browse' window. Selecting Browse does not show any files to insert!

Any ideas please?

Andrew

what's the file type filter under the Browse window (if any)

is that the "only" problem - that you can't see the files in the browse window ?

Thanks for response.

There is no filter under the Browse window, it just says Alternate text, Layout and Spacing.

And yes, that is the "only" problem, I can't see files in the browse window!

What folder does the Browse window start in? There can't be any Picture Files in that folder. You need to navigate to a folder that does contain them.

Yarwell means the 'Files of Type:' filter at the foot of Browse window.

The Browse window is blank, no folder, nada. Some of my pictures are in a folder called errmmm.... "My Pictures" so how please does one navigate to that folder using OE or at least persuade OE to open it ?

At the bottom of the Browse window are options for Layout/Alignment/Border thickness on the left of the window. On the right it says Spacing/Horizontal/Vertical

At the top 'Picture source' next to the Browse button that doesn't do anything and a Cancel button that doesn't work frown

Don't forget we are talking here about an antique Windows XP and Outlook Express 6 wink

Let's clarify, shall we?

When you hit 'Insert/Picture...' you get a Picture (not Browse) window with those Alternate Text, Layout & Spacing as you say. More importantly, at the top, a 'Picture Source:' field and Browse button.

You hit the Browse button and get a Browse window. What's in the 'Look in:' field at the very top and the 'Files of Type:' filter at the very bottom of this window?

EDIT: I'm also running XP & OE6 so I know what I'm talking about!

Correct!

I hit the Browse button and absolutely nothing happens!! Hit the Cancel button and absolutely nothing happens. I have to hit the X box to close it down.

Oops! Your OE6 seems damaged. Dunno where you can reinstall it from safely, but you can try a Web search.
