    I use OE6 myself, and have since it's invention, many years ago.
    I've set it up for hundreds of my own customers, but....
    you're not giving enough information about just what you're trying to do, to allow me to help you.

    There are many ways/programs, that claim to send a picture via email, but with OE6, I've found just one that works every time and works well.

    First step is to make sure your picture that you want to send is somewhere in the 500 to 800kb size. If not, resize it, with your graphics program. I use a free program "Photo Filtre" for that. It's very quick and easy to use.

    Then when you Create a New Email, make sure you're in "Rich Text (HTML)" format.
    That gives you the option of putting a picture IN your email, or just to attach it as an "Attachment".

    I do this stuff almost daily, so I do know how to do it, and I know it works well.

    Good Luck,
    The Doctor

    Try changing the comma in "smtp,live.com" to a period "smtp.live.com".

    Dang! I didn't even catch that.

    Yup! Computers are very specific about things like that. A comma will not substitute for a period.

    Thanks for catching that.

    I'm just amazed that some folks keep OE's flywheel turning over after all this time since the last updates available for it. May of 2006 give or take!! One would think a change in one protocol or another would have cut the jugular.

    Maybe it's because a lot of people still like it.

    I would still be using it if it were available in Windows 7.

    Windows Mail is the same as OE and I use it in Windows 7..
    Here's how it can be set up. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...dows-mail.html

    Just print out the instructions and follow them...

    Windows Mail is already in Windows 7 and these instructions will give you access to it..

    I searched for a phrase in my Outlook Express 6 inbox and there was no search result. I checked a message in which that phrase resided. I am positive I did not misspell that! I am using Windows XP Home Version 5.1 Service Pack 3. I guess I need to get a third-party proggie to search everything in any OE folder, but is there an explanation for the failure?

    Socampbell, I would suggest you start a new topic for your problem and you may get the answer to your problem.

    Well, it sort-of is. It took a healthy dose of steroids and came back with a new name. It's called "Windows Mail".

    Yeah, some dolt at MS disabled it, but that's only a minor inconvenience.
    Just replace MSOE.dll with the one from Vista and Windows Mail is back up and running.

    Then WinMail can be set up to look and act pretty much like O.E.6, which by the way, I still use.
    And so do all my customers that still have Windows XP.
    With very few exceptions, it just keeps on going like that Little Pink Bunny. Boom! Boom! Boom!

    I think the last service call I had, involving O.E.6, was several years ago, when a lady couldn't send any new email, because her Sent Items folder, with over 10,000 emails in it, would not fit in her 'available' ram. I dumped that folder and everything was just fine.
    Now she knows to keep that folder cleaned out on a regular basis.

    Cheers Mates!
