E-mail pictures

I received an e-mail containing nine links to photos. When I clicked on the 1st link, a picture appeared. When I clicked on the 2nd link, five jpg files appeared. When I clicked on the jpg files, a message appeared saying: " The requested URL ---- was not found on this server". It was the same way with the rest of the links. If it was a single picture, it would appear. If it was to jpg files, I couldn't get it. Why does this occur? What can I do to see the pictures? I have Windows 98 and a Netscape browser.

How about supplying us with one of the links that this happening with. It may be the those links are dead or none existent.

rayt333Commented:
Maybe the server was down or maybe the whole file didn't get uploaded to the server, if even a small part got uploaded then the name would be there, but nothing you could view.

Like CrazyOne asked, what is the site, paste a link here and maybe we can help.

pelejabCommented:
you could try right clicking the links and select either copy and paste this into the url window of a new webpage or select open in new window and see if any of these work. That way you will also be able to post these links into a comment as suggested above.

One easy way is to simply save the picture and view on a image program.
Move your mouse pointer to the picture and right click, now choose the option "Save image as...." and save it.

jimtheoAuthor Commented:
I know that the links are not dead because the other people who received the same message and who have Internet Explorer were able to view all the pictures. Here's one of the links.

In regard to saving the picture and viewing on an image program, I don't think that I have an image program.

Probably not.  You browser does not ship with photo software.  These were not really attached photos but a hyperlink to a photo site.  You should be able to go there.  I will boot up my other computer which has IE 6 beta and Netscape so I can do my banking.  I will try to get at the link via Netscape.

pbessmanCommented:
Do you have proxies set up for Netscape?  Perhaps that is the problem.  Can you switch to connect to the internet directly?

pbessmanCommented:
I can't access them using Netscape either.  No proxioes set on my machine either.  Possibly bad code.

brunoCommented:
The problem you are having is that the names of the images have spaces in them, which Netscape can not interperet.  If you can get at the page using Internet Explorer, you won't have any problem at all.

here are links you will be able to access in Netscape for those five pictures...

You should suggest to the person who sent the pictures that they should not uses spaces in file names, because that is not very web compliant.  what i have done is replace the spaces with the characters "%20" which allow you to view the files in Netscape.

Good luck.

If you would kindly look at the time difference from when posted your comment explaining "WHY" and the time I posted then you may see there is only a few minutes difference, most likely then (a clue for you) your comment was not posted when I read all the "posted" comments.

Gee lighten up a little would you .................... you acted like I copied your comment and posted it as the answer.

brunoCommented:
rayt333,

considering my first comment was posted at 10:44 and you did not post until 10:52 one could assume my comment would have already been there.

not a problem, i was just curious because your comment did not seem to reflect that you saw what i had posted.

I never said I had a problem with what you posted at all.

pbessmanCommented:
So it is BAD CODE as I presumed.  When one writes a webpage it is useful to check for browser compatibility before directing others there.  Bruno your links work but area work around for the real problem.  The real problem is that the names were written incorrectly as you said, bad typing = bad code!

Brunobear is 100% correct. I missunderstood the original question... my bad.
As noted you need to replace space in URL with the code %20.
I can view URL with spaces in my netscape. But I am on Linux now and have done some netscape updates..hmm..
Good call Bruno

brunoCommented:
i wonder are there netscape updates for windows that would solve that problem?

jimtheo claims a win98/netscape pairing, but wouldn't win98 have shipped with IE on it anyways?

jim IE will put the %20 code into the URL automatically for you if you have it....

Some people in their malicious ways, seem to have some up with a Windows destructive method to eliminates the Browser.  IE should be present or at least the ability to do a Windows update to rebuild your OS to what it should be.

To: CrazyOne,rayt333,pelejab,Navid,pbessman,brunobear.
I can't believe how helpful all you guys are.
To pbessman:  I could view the attached photos, but not on the hyperlink to the photo site. I'm not sure what you mean by proxies.
To rayt333: I do have IE, but haven't tried using it yet, because I'm not sure enough of myself to know what I'm doing.
To  brunobear: Thanks for the URLs. How can I put %20 in the spaces in the names of the images? I can't seem to get the cursor in the space to type in %20.
My computer was shipped with Win 98 and IE, but when I switched my ISP to cable (mediaone), they switched my browser to Netscape.
As you can see, all these pictures relate to NH. I'm a Granite State Ambassador volunteer at information booths in NH. Our director who transmitted the photos is not very technically savvy and probably does not realize that there should not be spaces in the names. I will inform her.

just open IE from the programs menu, then copy this link:
http://www.nhgsa.com/news/images/photoalbum/Concord%20Tour%202001/index.htm
And paste it in the address slot and hit enter.

Make sure you are online first, you can minimize the Netscape window, no need to close it to open IE.

To rayt333:
What you suggested worked! Thanks very much. I did not realize that it was so simple.  As brunobear pointed out, IE must fill in the spaces in the link, whereas Netscape doesn't. I have contacted others in our group and those with Netscape could not see the pictures, while those with IE could, except for one person who had IE but with Windows NT. Do you suppose that makes a difference?

If you are happy with the explanation given by brunobear above then you accept his comment as the answer and close this question out.

PS I have no idea about IE with NT, could even be an older version of IE.

I see you are new here and may not know the proper protocol we follow
when posting Answers and Comments.
We ONLY post as an answer when we are 200% sure that is the answer and
there is no other possible answer.
Your proposed answer certainly lacks this, you listed something that may
work but more likely will not help. In the future please refrain from
posting "Proposed Answer" instead post as comments and if your comment
is found to be the correct solution then the questioner can accept that
as the answer. By "locking" the question you may cause other experts to
overlook the question and a correct solution will be delayed or missed
completely.
Most of us have found that posting as comments is the best way for
everyone concerned.

This is the second time i have commented because you have posted n answer.  Read my other.  For that reason, I am rejecting your proposed answer.  You are doing a great job, just understand the protocol within this section (win98).
jimtheo, I will reject the proposed answer.  I see you want a split here and I am happy to assist.
On your say so, I will reduce this question 50, accept a comment as an answer and you can than post another question in this topic area for the other expert involved.

jimtheo,

that will work fine.  Please comment here with a link to the question you'll post for me, and I'll propose an answer to it.

Thanks, and I'm glad you got it to work.  

If you would rather use IE as opposed to Netscape, we can walk you thru changing your preferences so that IE becomes your default browser.  At this point in time, most people are of the opinion that IE is better.  But use whichever you are more comfortable with.

You can award both experts by accepting one comment and posting a question point for another. I think Brunnobear deservs points for this question since his answer was very complete and is a very good answer to this question for people who pay points to buy this question. If you like to award Rayt333 for his help, just post a point question on windows98 Topic, Titled: Points for Rayt333.
By accepting the best answer, you are doing Experts-Exchange and its users a favour.. :-)

I do not understand the reason for proposing answer by Ryt333 here! The questioner has already promised that he is going to award points to Brunobear and Ryt333 both.
I think Ryt333 better to propose answer to the other question. I know I am not part of this question.(but as a member of EE, it is my business to try to keep EE answers in a high level)  If I buy this question, I like to see the best answer. The best answer was from Brunobear.(if questioner has another opinion, that is something else)
Now if the questioner has had assistance by other experts, he can post question points for others.(already posted)
jimtheo:
I would like to accept an answer which is not your best answer, at least post a comment and make the question buyers which buy this question to know which answer has helped you best.
Thank you...

brunoCommented:
rayt,

i think navid was just trying to get at the point that when this becomes a PAQ, my answer was more closely related to the question posed.  He is not question the fact that we both deserve points, just that if someone pays for the PAQ, they would then look at the accepted answer.  I don't see it as a big problem, as both questions are linked to each other, and once the PAQ is purchased both our comments would be viewable anyways.  

Unless jimtheo has a problem with it, I say we just let it be, we have both proposed answers to the two seperate questions.

rayt333Commented:
How many question have you paid for?

This is only one of thousands of questions in the PAQ, the only way to find them is if you get lucky and open the correct one, most time the search doesn't work or brings up unrelated questions.

I really don't know why I am even bothering with this, I wish I could reject the proposed answer and leave it alone.

jimtheo, in answer to something you raised above re "how can I replace the spaces with %20" just right click the hyper-links (one at a time of course) and paste these into an open wordpad document. Then click the Edit tab at the top and select replace. In the "find what" box type a single space key using your spacebar and in the "replace with" box type %20 and then click the "replace all" tab and your hyperlinks will be correct for copying and pasting to Address box in your browser.
cheers, Pete
