HI


If you access your Hotmail account via their website, I don't think
you can. But you can do it if you use Outlook Express to access
Hotmail. In the "format" menu, make sure "rich text (html)" is
checked. Then click "insert" / "picture", then click "browse" to
select your photo.

Hello martinmcginley,

Are you sending from Outlook or from webmail?  If from webmail, you can copy and paste the image into the body of email.  Depending on the recipient's email client or service, recipien tmay or may not see the image.  There is no reliable way to show images because recipient's email services vary greatly.  Only reliable way is to send image as attachment.

Hope this helps!

I am sending from webmail.  It wiont let me cut and paste.  I have tried jpeg and gif formats. The paste function is greyed out.  It does not look like it can be done.

If you use Ctrl + C to copy, and Ctrl + V to paste, will it work?

nope - i tried yahoo as well but they dont work either.  I tried owa and that does not accept the html cut/paste either.  I think it is a defficiency of html, it need links to the pictures not the pictures themselves...just my thoughts

you don't rty to cut paste a picture in either Yahoo or Hotmail -- you add it as an ATTACHMENT (I know you can do this in Yahoo) and it gets sent as an attachment which anyone can view.  If there is a .JPG block now on hotmail, just rename the file to a .PDF extension, and tell the recipient to rename to JPG before viewing.
