I sent a photograph (jpeg format) to a colleague  as a file attachment. While he received the email he was told that the attachment had been removed for safety. Is there a way around this so that the photograph can be received?

A way that usually works is to zip the file up into somefile.zip and send that to your user. XP will natively unzip a properly zipped up file and the receiving system should not remove a ZIP file. ... Thinkpads_User

I use WinZip to zip files. Very professional program and available on an evaluation basis. If you like it, it is very inexpensive.  You can also zip things up natively in XP or Vista (Send to Compressed folder in Windows Explorer). I just prefer WinZip. ... Thinkpads_User

Sure. Just remember that WinZip is the best way to go. I have used this to send files all over the place. And XP or Vista can happily unzip them if the recipient doesn't have WinZip.

How about you upload the photo to a photo sharing site and email this person the url?

Sorry for not replying. I used Winzip and sucessfully zipped up the files (photographs). I then sent them by email (as attachments). I wont know whether they got through until next Monday as the recipient (I have just learned) has gone on Holidays (we're in Ireland). Will contact you immediately as soon as I have the feedback. Much appreciated your help.
