    The red x can be a security setting in Outlook Express. The friend you are sending the picture to, are they using Outlook Express or a web-based email such as yahoo or hotmail?

Right click on the "red X" area and click on "allow images" or "view images". Something to that effect should be an option. It's simply a security measure that makes things... well... not so simple.

Do not know how to send pictures

You can send pictures by attaching them to an E-mail message. In Outlook Express click on Create Mail. In the New Message dialog box, click on insert and then click on file attachment. Then browse to the folder where your pictures are and select the picture that you want to send. If you wish to send more than one picture, hold down the Ctrl key and click on the pictures you want to attach to your E-mail. This procedure will be different for other E-mail programs.

I am trying to copy my pictures from my motorola razor phone to my pictures on my computer, the USB in connected to my razor and pc (tower). When viewing my pics on cell phone, I select copy it displays...


Did you create a folder on your computer that you want to save the picture? if no, create a folder, after creating the, open the folder, now go back to copy the picture, and paste in the folder you created for the picture, the picture should display.

Did your phone come with a USB cable? if so, even try uploading them without a CD because your computer can recognize it as a new device without any installation CD.
Another way is, do you have free text? If you do then you can send you pictures to your e-mail address, once you receive it in your e-mail, you can right click on the picture and hit “save as” and save it onto your computer. You can also do it if you don’t have free text but it’ll probably cost you depending on service charge and how many pictures you have to send..

Take care.

Forwarding a received mail to all my contacts using gmail

Hello Ciao
You have to make a group in your contacts, (yahoo calls it category). Give a name to the group eg: friends, family, business etc
When you send the mail, or forward the mail, type the name of the group in the TO: field. Of course you can make a group called "All My Contacts" and forward to the group. You can go to the TO: list and delete one or two names if you like: Best of luck

E-mail pictures/photos

Mail providers usually restrict images to be automatically displayed in order to protect your privacy. When someone send you an email with image and when you viewed that image it is possible to the sender know that you have read/view the mail. Who knows Who send you what!

IF you want to view image, on the upper side you should see "Display images below....." or may be similar words
