Last Modified: 2010-04-08
I have a graphic at the top of an email I am trying to send and it shows up on the screen when i send/receive the email, however when i print the email the picture does not print.  Instead i get the outline box with the little red "x" in the corner.  I would like the graphic to print when i print the email.  What am I doing wrong.  Thanks.

if you are using outlook, then that's because of a limitation in outlook. the attachments are stored separately and only loaded when you open the message

That makes sense.  Thank you.  If I go Insert -> Picture .  Should that work?

this explains it

someone has said
[Yes there is a tick box relating to printing attachments in the Print dialogue box; File -> Print. Take note that the attachment will get printed to the default printer and the message to the selected printer.] but I'm skeptical, I tried it and it still doesn't.

to print it, you may need a workaround like

yes i think it works correctly if you use the HTML format and insert->picture, because it gets embedded (mashed into) the email, instead of being a separate file
