How to send LOCAL page via e-mail?

I'm using Netscape Gold under W95 and have created several
pages that reside on my local hard drive - my isp does not
allow us to update our pages directly.

When I view the pages I can see all the links and images
and the frames, but when I e-mail the document from the
File/Mail Document option the user only sees the text and
the frames, not the images.

If I zip the directory where the files reside and send that
to them via e-mail and the uncompress the files in "any"
directory they can see the pages just fine.

Any help appreciated

mal,
Netscape Navigator allows you to mail the current page (or current frame if a frame is open).  The default behavior of the File/Mail... menu item depends on the type of page being viewed.
If you are viewing a page requested from the Internet, a URL link will be attached to the mail message along with a URL for the file in the body of the message.
If you are viewing a page requested from the hard drive, the source file will be attached to the mail message.
The images will not be sent with the page because the menu item was intended to allow a person to mail a URL for a file to someone else who could click on the link to the file and view it from the Internet (no needs to mail images in this case).

Also note the behavior using frames.  If you are viewing a page composed of frames, you have to select a particular frame to mail to the person if the file is stored locally.  If it is a frames page viewed from the Intenet, the URL to the main page is mailed, not the URL to a particular frame in the frameset.

How To Reduce Deployment Times With Pre-Baked AMIs

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.
