Look at Edit/Preferences/E-mail - how is it set up?
It is set for Outlook Express, so wonder why it is choosing Word as the email client.
No problem with mailto, sent test to your email address

Which I have not yet received ...
What I did notice was the underscore (_) did not insert into your email address when I clicked the link.
I have resent the test message having inserted the underscore
> What I did notice was the underscore (_) did not insert into your email address when I clicked the link.
That is odd, as the link is intact. If I click on it, the new email has exactly the right email address. I just sent myself a message that way [using an entirely diferent email service], which arrived instantly. I still suspect something is awry on your system.

Still no sign of it ...
I don't any issues sending emails to anyone else, however why hasn't your emails bounced back? As I think I said earlier when I attach photos to email and click send they "leave" but never arrive anywhere including sending them to myself
> I don't any issues sending emails to anyone else
Are you sure?
> why hasn't your emails bounced back?
Email only bounces if you send it to a non-existant address. This can take days, depnding upon what's wrong with the address. An email sent to the correct address, but not delivered, with no response at all, is rarer and implies a transmission problem.
You said you sent email to yourself that didn't arrive ...
What if you open a new email and drag a couple of pics out of PSA SE into it and email to yourself. Does that work?
Sorry I have no idea how to do that
> Sorry I have no idea how to do that
Which bit is a problem?
Open a new email [with Outlook Express].
Address it to yourself.
Open PSA SE and drag a picture into this email [it will be an attachment].
Click send on the email.
How do you "drag"
Received email notification to read new message but no new message appearing on the website
> How do you "drag"
I do not wish to be rude, but this is probably the single most basic Windows operation after "click". I think you need to become more proficient with using Windows. Drag means click and hold the button on something and pull it across the screen to somewhere else.
> Received email notification to read new message but no new message appearing on the website
I have no idea what you are talking about. What Web site?
Unfortunately due to my disability I am unable to attend computer classes, hence why I have to rely on assitance from others. I incorecctly referred to "website" when I should have called it "forum" so sorry about that.
Dragging is when you move the cursor over top of something, click on it and
them move the mouse with your finger still pressed down. Essentially you are
able to "drag" a file from one location to another.
Try it with any file on your desktop. Just be careful to lift your finger in
the same spot you started otherwise you might interrupt how a file might
work. For example some of these files might be shortcuts to applications
that you need to use. If you dropped one file into a "folder" icon, it would
disappear and might not work anymore.
Thank you Jim. If I want to send only one photo from Adobe it is not possible to do the drag and drop is it? As you may have read from my earlier messages in the forum I am unable to attach any photos directly out of Adobe for some strange reason.
> If I want to send only one photo from Adobe it is not possible to do the drag and drop is it?
It is possible, as I said before. Just open a new email and drag the photo into it.
I have tried that sadly with no success, obviously due to lack of total understanding of Windows and Adobe
I am determined to crack this!
Let's go through the steps:
Start Outlook Express and create a new email.
Move the email dialog box over to the bottom right part of your screen.
Open PSA SE and make the window smaller than full screen.
Click and hold on an image and move the mouse over to the email window - it will show a "no entry" icon until you reach thee mail, then it will change to a tiny thumbnail of the image., then let go of the mouse button.
Now complete the address, subject and text of the email and send it.
You actually don't need to resize. If you drag the image over top of the
button on the task bar (that is the bar at the bottom of the desktop that
shows what applications are running), it will bring up the window of the
application. Drag it over top of the button that represents the email you
just created, then when that window comes up, keep dragging the image over
top of the email and then release the button (dropping) so that the image
essentially drops into the email itself.
Be patient, it will happen.
Hi Jim, With your very clear instructions I managed to do it after quite a few attempts. Thank you ever so much for your help. Regards Rae
