The MMS service does't always work between networks, you sometimes have to retreive the pics via a PC.
I presume you received the MMS settings from your network service provider.

Whenever I try to send or receive a picture message on my HTC Inspire 4G I get a "generic network failure" error message. How do I fix it?

That usually occurs when your internet is not turned on. If you do not see that your 3G is turned on when you are trying to send a picture, you will get this error message. Go to your wireless settings and double check that your mobile network is turned on. If it is, you might need to update your profile (also under settings).

Dial *228 option 1 and try again. If that doesn't work then you have to call your wireless carrier and have a data feature refresh done to your line.

Picture messaging

I've had the same issue, and I was told that in order to send or recieve picture messages, you have to subscribe to Verizon's Internet plan. The reason that you can still send and recieve text messages is because it's on a different system. I was a bit peeved when I found this out after the fact.

Unable to send and recieve pix

I believe that the problem is either with the service provider not receiving a strong enough signal therefore not sending the picture, or with the service providers delivery route number that may be incorrect. Call your service provider, they should be able to send your phone a service message that in turn should fix your problem. Hope this helps
