So when people send me e-mails with images as attachments all I get is red x's. I has nothing to do with my filter options in hotmail because I checked that already. Is my computer missing the software to view images? My computer crashed a few months ago and I believe it is since then that I have had this problem.

An example of my problem is that a friend has been attempting to send me pics from his telus cell phone. When I open the e-mail it shows red x's and when I try to open the attachment I'm sent back to the hotmail sign-in page. What is going wrong here? What am I missing? Its driving me crazy!

Hmmmmm


allow me to ponder this for a minute.








the answer is... you're friends are idiots and they don't know how to send pictures. You have to do nothing, but laugh at their stupidity.
Of course, you can always just send a test e-mail to yourself to see if its your settings.

Okay, so I sent myself a pic and it worked. I considered the fact that possibly everyone but myself are idiots but it seems that this excuse is getting tired. I think its certain programs or software that have decided that they don't like my computer. I've got nothing here....

I just had an idea. You know how sometimes you recieve attachments as a windows icon and you have to apply a program to open them with? I think in your settings the wrong action has been applied.

If you go into help, or control panel set actions to default or remove actions and reaply proper program for say jpeg and I bet you will be able to open them.

Okay I'm think of windows 95 terms.

Here try this:



To associate a file extension with a file type

Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
Click the File Types tab.
Click New.
Type a new or existing file name extension, and then click Advanced.
In File type, click New to create a new file type that is associated with the file name extension. Or, click one of the existing file types.
Notes

To open a Control Panel item, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon. Or, in Windows Explorer, click Tools, and then click Folder Options.
For information about how to make modifications to the file type, see Related Topics.
To change the program that opens a file, on the File Types tab, click Change.
