Hello Experts,
I am runnning Win2K Pro and IE6. When I am on a webpage with an image on the page, in the past I would right click the image, choose email picture, and Outlook would start and I could email the image.

Now nothing happens. Outlook does not start. No errors or messages. Nothing.

TIA for you help.
Bob

First, check to see if Outlook is the Email program still.  Click on Tools at the top of IE and choose Internet Options.  Click on the Programs tab.  Look at the setting for Email: and change it to Outlook if that program is selected.  Save it with OK and try again.  Does that fix the problem?

Let me know how this works or if you have a question.

Rwardlow,

Make sure Outlook Express is the default email client.  In OE, go to Tools > Options > General tab. Make default is selected for OE email.

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs. Make sure OE is selected as Email program.

Yes on the Internet Options, programs tab, Microsoft Office Outlook is the program selected for email.

What else can I try?

I don't want to use Outlook Express. I have Outlook installed and would prefer to use that.

What else can I try?

Sorry, Rwardlow! I misread your question. In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Other and select to check if Outlook is default email client. Click OK. Close and reopen Outlook. If Outlook is not default, you will be prompted to make Outlook the default.

Toggle the setting.  Unselect Outlook as default. Save Changes. Restart Outlook. Select Outlook as default. Save Changes. Restart Outlook. Now test.

If no joy, what happens now if you right click an image?  Some websites block copying or sending of their images.

I am still stumped. I tried recycling the default and I successfully emailed the image from another PC.

Any other thoughts?

Some websites block copying or sending of their images using javascripts.  If you disable javascripts in your browser, you may be able to send copy or send images.

Thanks for checking in. I don't think it is the site blocking sending the images. I went to the same site with another PC and could email the image fine.

I am also not on-site again until Thursday. I will try disabling Javascripts as you recommended and try again.

Thanks

Thank you both for your help even though I couldn't solve the problem. I gave up and reinstalled Outlook. Now it works again.
