    Hotmail on IE 5.5 (5.5)

    This really *is* an Internet Explorer question...

    If I go to the attached link, and then send (or forward) the page (as a page) to my Hotmail (or Yahoo mail, for that matter), and then view it on the internet through my account *none* of the graphics show... just place-holding boxes.

    If however, I set up my Hotmail in Outlook Express, and view the very same email through there, *all* the graphics show up.

    What have I done wrong in my IExplorer setups? I use Hotmail so seldom that I had never noticed this before, but my daughter is on Hotmail, so, there you are...

    I have tried everything I can think of....

    The link is http://www.ivory.com/baby.htm.

    That's the page I tried to forward

    I'll be curious what in the world I've screwed up here....

    Chuck ~

    You aren't doing anything wrong. When you are visiting your web-based e-mail account, you are only viewing the text portions of your mail as your browser hasn't had the opportunity to translate the MIME based e-mail encoding to something your browser can read. OE or clinet of choice does this for you so you can then view such.

    Bruce:

    So how then do I see an entire message over the web... or not? It isn't just a question of time, since I left it on screen for 30 minutes just to be sure...

    Although Hotmail is able to present some HTML files, when viewing web based mail on the web there are no guarantees of being able to view anything other than text messages. Your best bet would be to use a client of your choice that will allow you to connect to POP3 servers. I personally prefer Juno 5.033, but many folks use Lookout Express [sic]. If you have the need, I have a little tutorial I threw together for accessing your Hotmail account through OE.

    Juno?? Where?? Why not Oultlook Express? So accessto your email 'from anywhere' is to date just primarily a text function....

    The version of the Juno 5.033 e-mail client allows linking to external POP3 e-mail accounts. I do not like Lookout Express at all, in fact, I hate it. Access to your e-mail 'from anywhere' is just that - access - giving you at least text readability. Whether you can enjoy rich presentation is another story.

    Bruce:

    And so I get Juno where? BTW, I sent you an email that I liked your site, but it was rejected...

    Chuck--
    I have noticed this happening occassionally in Hotmail since SP1 and corrected by hitting the Refresh button on the IE toolbar--also Yahoo will ocassionally say it has timed out a few minutes after oppening it, and this behavior is also corrected by hitting the Refresh button.

    Hi, Chuck....

    You should have it by now. And you have to pull the 'Q' s out of my address. Helps keep bots from farming my address for spammers.
