I am having the same problem with gmail. I receive email with embedded pictures but when I forward that email recipient does not get the pictures. I have tried gmail in both chrome and firefox with the same results. When I forward these emails to a SquirrelMail account the image is flagged as unsafe for some reason and can only be opened after the warning message.
Windows Live Mail will not forward embedded pictures
I've followed several threads online and completed the steps. When I get an email in Windows Live Mail with embedded pictures, WLM will not include the pictures when I forward. I've checked "download photos" and unchecked the option to turn pictures into photo mail. Yet it refuses to cooperate. I don't have the same problem with Outlook or Outlook Express (wish I could still use Outlook Express, but it's obsolete in Windows 7).
I am running Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 32 Bit. When I first open up WLM, it fails to connect to all of my email addresses; I have to run send and receive 3 or 4 times before it 'picks up'. I have tries uninstalling WLM and reinstalling but I have the same problem. Although I get the email eventually, it is really annoying. Does anyone have any answers, or have experienced the same scenario?
Had same problem, because Microsoft stores your email photos in the "cloud," whether you want it to or not. No option to user. So I switched to Mozilla Thunderbird!!!

Sad to say there is no answer. Microsoft has decided this is not a bug, it is a feature, and no, you can not go back to Outlook Express which did not have this "feature". There are times I want the picture to be put in the body of the text and kept there. So far, dewydog's suggestion in post #21 is the best.
To add a pic to the body of the email in WLM 2011 simply select the insert tab, and choose Single Photo.

Hi Guy's, I'm new here as of today. My problem is similar to the one posted here. I sometimes do not receive images that are sent to my Windows Live Mail. I believe that these are, unfortunately, a problem with the sender rather than my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Is there anything I can do to force my WLM to show the pictures or, do I have to get on to my friend in the UK and ask him to fix his WLM. If this is what I have to do, what do I tell him?
I have had a problem with PDFs that are sent to me. I can open the PDF all right but the sender's message to me is invisible. I have to convert it to text before I can see what the sender wrote to accompany the pdf.
I think your best bet is to tell the sender to send the pictures as attachments. If you wanted to, you could use dropbox - www.dropbox.com
If you want him to resize the images and send you smaller versions, tell him to create a small text file in the same folder as the pictures. Select the text file at the same time as he selected the picture. Right click, send-to, mail recipient. The Windows image resizer will pop up. Pick a size. I like 640x480. Click it. An email with photos attached will appear. Delete the useless text file. Delete it out of the list of photos in the body of the email. Type his message, address the email and hit send.
WLM is a pain in the rear, no doubt about it. Microsoft really messed up with this thing.
photos copied into emails will not send, neither will they forward
It is not only aol. I have the same WLM (2011) and until this week could always copy photos into body of email, and forward emails with photos. Now I can do neither.
What is going on? Seems a lot of us suddenly have this issue?
sending documents as attachments cannot be opened by receivers who do not have WLM and most of my receivers do not. Any help would greatly appreciataed
I quickly became aware of these same issues when I ditched my XP system for a Win 7 machine, and started using WLM. In addition, Acronis True Image wouldn't back up WLM (they now say it has something to do with WLM, and that there is no immediate fix). This was (still is) my solution: a program called eM Client. It has much of the functionality of Outlook, though certainly not as slick looking, BUT ... it is free!!!
The only way I've found to restore this functionality is DUMP WLM11 and restore WLM 2009. When WLM11 first came out I, along with several others opened this same conversation with MS in the WLM forum. Went through several hoops/tests for the "support" person. Finally got an answer back "We are continuting to evaluate this". No other word or fix since then that I can find. I keep one copy of WLM11 on one machine to use when I feel the urge to castigate Microsoft. This is the only product I've ever used from them that I absolutely cannot use as I want or can accept.
Inserting photos is easy. Including embedded photos when forwarding email in WLM 11 is not. I like to clean up forwarded email to eliminate those messy looking blue/black lines from previous posters. I have a way to do this in WLM 2009. Not in WLM11. It's really best for me to just use WLM 2009 and ignore the "upgrade" offered by WLM11.
