My default e-mail program

Likewise in reverse...the installation program choose Outlook (I used to use this and still have it installed on my system)...but I now use AOL.  How to switch to AOL?. Internet settings in Control panel?

If you are using AOL, you can ignore Outlook as it cannot be used to access AOL email. There's been talk that AOL would permit this, but I don't see it happening.

If you are accessing the internet via a separate internet service provider and not through AOL directly, then set AOL to access the internet connection via a LAN connection. It's in your AOL setup configuration.

If you need more, just ask!

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

Then at this moment (until AOL gets its act together) you can ignore Outlook completely. You can still use the Windows 98 Internet Explorer version 5 by minimizing AOL after you log on and then open Internet Explorer.

What I've done previously is scanned the image and saved it as a .Jpg file under a seperate directory.  Then, in AOL I attach it to an e-mail and use it from there.  This is fine for me, but perhaps over the head of my wife and 8 year old who both have AOL e-mail accounts.  I was trying to find a simpler way for them?  But I have experienced problems with the way AOL transfers these images...particularly when e-mailing to outlook from AOL?

Do other people experience this as well?

They sure do, both in email coming into AOL and going out of AOL. I've seen AOL convert jpg's to mim, txt and just about everything else.

What you may want to try is setting up a free Hotmail account and then use that for transferring emailed images.
