Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Blank email body

Thanks to those who offered solutions thus far, none have worked.
The problem: When I download emails, SOME of them have a blank body, or no apparent attachments, notably those coming from Yahoo addresses, but not them alone. If I look in properties/ details/ message source, I can see the missing text, but if there was an attachment, say a .jpg file, it displays in properties as ascii code, it does not decode. Any more suggestions, turning off the firewall and virus scanner does nothing any different! I'm (nearly) ready to tear my hair out.
I runXP Pro SP3 (problem the same with SP1/ SP2), and Outlook Express 6.

To resolve this behavior, clear the Temp and Temporary Internet folders: 1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. 2. On the General tab, click Delete Files, click OK, and then click OK again. 3. In Windows Explorer, click to expand the hard disk letter, click to expand Windows, and then click to expand Temp. 4. Select all of the files, and then on the File menu, click Delete. 5. Click Yes.
Hope this helps!

Check the CD-ROM by inserting another CD before performing any other action because sometimes the lens of CD-ROM leaves work, also check the CD compatibility by abrading the hole of CD with a cutter or knife or key, do not abrade it too much. If the CD is really blank, download the driver from the internet or contact with company via their website or Service Centre.

Forward some pages of a letter or document by email

You send them as attachments to your email. Just pick "attachments" and you will find a dialog box where you can pick the documents you want to send. You can send 5 or 6 at a time, just keep picking the documents. Hope this helps.

I just need to know how to email on yahoo to email pictures what do i do

When you log in to your account, click on new email and then you should get a blank box to write in. Above this there should be lots of little icons to change text etc and one of the buttons should say add attachment. Click on here and navigate to your photos on your computer in the box that comes up. When you have selected the photos you want to send click ok and you should see then appear on your email. Any further help needed just ask :)
