Question about Gateway GT5692 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

I just received an E-mail with 2 attachments with a ''gif'' format. When I try to open these attachments, which I expected to be a copy of a photograph, I obtain all kinds of strange objects, with no connection to the expected picture. My question is, how do I open a ''gif'' formatted attachment? My operating sytem is Windows XP, and I use Outlook express for reading my e-mails. Thanks!

If you are sure that the Email attachment is from a reliable source and then content is potentially safe you can try to download the images to your computer and save it in a folder.

After you have saved the pictures, open the folder containing those picture files and try to open it with Internet explorer.

If it is not ready to open with Internet explorer then you should not try to open it with any other program. There are chances that either the file is corrupted or it contains a Virus or other harmful stuffs.

Mail From Yahoo


Yahoo Mail is a popular webmail service that allows people to create their own email username and have it hosted by the Yahoo network.
In addition to providing fast and reliable email, Yahoo Mail also allows you to send and receive large attachments.
If you use Yahoo Mail, and are having issues opening attachments, there are several easy troubleshooting steps you can try to get your Yahoo Mail attachments.
Sign out of Yahoo and clear your cache.
Since Yahoo! needs to access your cache to keep you logged in and to communicate with your computer when downloading attachments, a full cache can prevent Yahoo Mail from opening attachments correctly.
Go to your browser's "Tools" or "Internet Options" menu and then select the "Delete Temporary Internet files" command to delete your cache.
Reload the page.
lf you have had Yahoo Mail open for a long time, the page may have gone idle, and you may not be able to access your attachment.
Press the "Reload" (F5) button and then log back in to your account.
Ensure that the attachment is not corrupt.
If the sender did not finish uploading before they hit "Send" or there was an error during the upload, the file may be corrupted.
Ask the sender to re-attach the file and send it again.
Check the file format.
Some formats are proprietary and will not open unless specific programs are installed on your computer.
For instance, if you are sent an AAC file, you will not be able to open it unless iTunes is installed on your computer.

Can't get most of my attachments to appear


With the Web-based Yahoo! Mail service, you can attach to your email message a saved Web page or another document in HyperText Markup Language format.
When you attach an HTML file in this way, Yahoo! Mail won't display the HTML content of the attached file in the email message body.
To view the attachment, you must click the attachment tab above the email message.Yahoo! Mail and HTML
Yahoo! Mail is a Web-based service and it's fully compatible with the coding languages used to design and display Web content, including HTML and XML, Extensible Markup Language.
This means emails sent or received in Rich text or HTML format include clickable hyperlinks, graphics and other Web design elements.
However, Yahoo! handles emails with HTML attachments in a different way to email messages formatted with HTML.

About Yahoo! Mail Attachments
Like most email programs and online services, Yahoo! Mail offers an attachment feature for adding images, video clips, audio files and HTML document to email messages.
Some email programs display the content of the attached file in the email message body, but Yahoo! Mail doesn't provide this feature for any file attachment, whether it's an image, video clip or HTML document.


Viewing Yahoo! Mail Attachments When you attach an HTML document or another file to your Yahoo! Mail message, an "Attachments" button labeled with a "Paperclip" icon appears below the email address fields and above the email message body.
Clicking the "Attachments" button opens a pane containing a list of all files attached to the email. The email sender or recipient can open each attachment to view the files by clicking the file name.

Considerations

When sending a Yahoo! Mail with an attachment, always explain the content of the attachment in the main body of the email message.
A brief explanation will encourage the recipient to click and open the attachment to view the HTML document.
Bear in mind that many email services automatically block HTML attachments because of the security risk of opening HTML files, which can contain viruses, phishing scams or open Web pages with inappropriate content.
If you want to share a favorite Web page with a friend or contact, include a hyperlink to the Web page rather than a saved copy as an HTML attachment.

I have received a mail with attachment and when i am trying to download the attachment it is not downloadble and the message will vanish


Is it an expected E-mail? if it is try to open it on different browser like IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari. Maybe try the Latest Browsers, maybe there are technical issue on your current browser. But if that is not a expected e-mail, i suggest not to open it, because there are lots of unknown e-mail with attachment that once you downloaded will automatically vanished but without your notice virus already spread on your computer.

I attached 5 pictures that took forever, send them and then received message that e-mail wasnt deliver. Please HELP


Most likely the image is to big a file something like .bmp etc... Open it in a photo program or microsoft paint then save it as .gif or .jpg and this will reduce the file size and be alot quicker to upload. Also some email providers cap how much file space you can send which is why you probably didn't receive it.

Hope it helps,

Thanks.

I want to change the signature on my outgoing emails. How do I do that? Can I add a logo to it?


1. Go to your email box.

2. Click on 'Options' (upper right, blue letters).

3. Scroll down to and click on 'Signature' (second column, under 'Management').

4. Select> 'Editor: Plain | Color and Graphics.

5. Enter signature text and/or graphics (you can 'Copy' and 'Paste' text and/or graphics directly into the input field).

8. Check the box:
'[/] Add signature to all outgoing messages'
Or leave the '[_] Add signature....' box unchecked and check box below compose area (when sending messages) '[/] Use my signature'

9. Click on the 'Save' button (upper left, under 'Mail' tab).

---------

You can 'Copy' and 'Paste' your pictures directly into the input field (if the image is JPEG format - ".gif" or ".jpg"), but there is limited space. If your picture suddenly disappears, it may have gotten corrupted during the process, try it again. Note: some images may not allow you to copy them due to HTML restrictions on the page.

If your picture is in your computer, you can send it to yourself via an attachment and it will be in your 'Search Shrtcuts' > 'My Attachments' - 'My Photos' folders.

After you locate your picture in the search shortcuts folder:
1. Double-Left click on the photo to open.

2. One-Right click on open photo to reveal the pop-up menu.

3. Choose 'Copy'.

4. Go to signature input box and one-Left click on target area to set cursor.

5. One-Right click to reveal pop-up menu.

6. Choose 'Paste'.

Or you can upload your image to 'Photobucket.com' and 'Copy' it from there.
Photobucket
http://photobucket.com/

------------

The Color and Graphics version of Yahoo! Mail also gives you the ability to include HTML graphics in your signature, by doing the following:

1. Locate an image (".gif" or ".jpg") that you wish to add to your message. This image can be selected from the Web.
2. Once you find your your picture of choice, right-click your mouse and select "Copy" from the menu that appears next to your cursor. Note: some images may not allow you to copy them due to HTML restrictions on the page.
3. Login to your Yahoo! Mail account.
4. Click the "Mail Options" link in the upper right-hand area of the page.
5. Click the "signature" link in the left-hand Personaliztion column.
6. Make sure the cursor is in the Color and Graphics signature field and paste your copied image by pressing "Ctrl+V". Your fonts, sizes and colors should all remain the same. You can also resize your image.

If you would like to edit your signature in the future, just return to the Signature area, make the changes you want, and click "Save."
