I create a graphic signatue as an html file but when I insert it in a created email it arrives in the attachment line and has to be opened as a separate file. When it is created as a signature in the formal way and then clicking on it to insert it in the body of the email it appears as square box with a small red icaon in top left corner.

I do not recommend sending your signature in an e-mail as it can be copied and pasted for fraudulent use.

Try it like this:
Alt+Print Screen your signature, and paste it into paint. Crop the edges so that your signature is all that is seen and save it as something like c:\sig.jpg.
Then edit your html file to contain something like this:
<html>
<body>
<img src="c:\sig.jpg" height=80 width=80><br>
<b>hoot776</b>
</body>
</html>

Word docs sent as email attachments are arriving in my inbox as png files - useless. How do I change this please


.PNG stands for "Portable Network Graphics". Sounds like the sender may have scanned the document, and sent the scanned document to you? Scans will come out as either .png, .jpg, or .pdf formats.

If the file is a .png, you won't be able to edit in MS Word.

Another thing to check - Make sure when you are working on a Word Document, you are saving it as a .doc file.

  • Open MS Word Document
  • Do your editing
  • Click on the "Fille" button, and then select "save as" option
  • In the window that appears, next to the "save as type" wording click on the down triangle to see different formats to save. Select ".doc"
Bottom line... tell whomever is sending the emails with attachments, to send you the MS Word file, not a scanned file.

How to do Fast and unattended setup of OS


Here I have an Idea for primary setup of a large lab quickly. Suppose you have to setup a lab where have more than twenty or thirty system but must setup it quickly. At that time if you don't have enough CD Rom drive or not enough OS installer CD then the task will take a long time. To save time at the same moment I like to prepare an unattendent operating system installation. Before this task I must check for presence of some requirement. Verify for unattended Installation: To perform an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, the following conditions must be met:The computer must support booting from a CD Rom The unattended answer file must be renamed to Winnt.sif and copied to a floppy disk so Setup can access it. So must need a floppy disk drive.The answer file must contain a valid [Data] section. This is explained later in this article. Before installation it has some conditions:

1> the installation is limited to a single partition.

2> you cannot specify third-party drivers during Setup Prepare For an Unattended Installation:

To prepare your computer for an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, I've followed these stepsFirst I've created a Folder in local drive & shared it. Then I create setup manager.I install Setup Manager by following these steps:I Open My Computer, and then open the SupportTools folder on the Windows XP CD-ROM.Double-click the DEPLOY.CAB file to open it On the Edit menu, click Select All.On the Edit menu, click Copy to Folder.Click Make New Folder. Type the name that you want for the Setup Manager folder, and then press ENTER. For example, type setup manager, and then press ENTER.Click Copy. Open the new folder that you created, and then double-click the setupmgr.exe file. The Windows

Setup Manager Wizard starts: alokerdas_2.jpg

Then I Use Setup Manager to Create an Answer File.
I open the setup manager & go to create a new answer file.
Then I go to the unattended installation & windows version option.
I have selected the fully automated option & create an answer file.


alokerdas_3.jpg

If you want Windows Setup to delete all partitions on the hard disk and to create a new partition, you must include the Repartition command in the Winnt.sif file. Under [Unattended], insert a new line, and then type "Repartition=Yes"
If you omit this line, you are prompted for the installation partition.

Add a [Data] section with the following entries to the unattended answer file:
Unattended Install=Yes - Value must be set to "yes"
MSDos Initiated=No - Value must be set to "no" or Setup stops during the graphical portion of Setup

Auto Partition=1 - If the value is set to 1, the installation partition is automatically selected. If the value is set to 0 (zero) you are prompted for the installation partition during the text portion of Setup.
Save the unattended answer file as Winnt.sif on a floppy disk.
Insert the Windows CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then insert the floppy disk into the floppy disk drive.
Change the boot order in the CMOS so that the CD-ROM is first in the list.
Restart your computer. When Setup is started from the CD-ROM, the Winnt.sif file located on the floppy disk will be used to complete the unattended installation.

Tip

Create your own autorun CD or DVD





It is easy to create an autorun CD or DVD for Windows and all it takes are a few files (which we've supplied for free). The technique can be used to open other file types, but HTML is used for a reason: it is the most commonly supported by Windows (most PCs have a Web browser) and it is flexible. You could use it to open other files, such as a Powerpoint presentation, but it would require the end user to have Powerpoint or the Powerpoint viewer on their system.

The autorun zip file we've prepared contains everything you need to autorun a CD and open a HTML file. So download a copy - it's tiny and free - see above for the download link.

So why can't an autorun open a HTML directly? It is because a Windows autorun can only open an application (program) not a data file (eg HTML). You cannot tell an autorun to directly open a HTML file. Try it, and nothing will happen. To get around his problem, we are using a .bat file which Windows will treat as a program. This special file will then open the HTML file.


Assembling the CD
Download and copy the files to your root directory of the CD. These are: autorun.inf, autorun.bat and index.html. You can put all sorts of files on the rest of the CD. They won't affect the autorun. You can test the autorun by burning the three files to the root directory of a test CD-R. Open the CD drive and close it again. Viola, you have just created your own autorun HTML CD. You should change the contents of index.html to whatever you need. The index.html supplied is only a test page.

Changes you can make
The autorun can open any type of file and display any message you want. To make changes, open Windows Notepad (do not use Word, WordPad or other Word processors). Now open the autorun.bat file from within Notepad. The order is important, if you double-click the autorun.bat file, it will try to run. So open NotePad and select File-Open and choose the autorun.bat file. You'll see four lines of code.

The first line after @echo (remember the space) will appear as a comment in the autorun launch Window. This comment will be seen very briefly by your end-users. It can be changed to anything you want, but since it only appears for a second or less, don't make it too wordy. If you wanted to say 'The CD is loading now...', the first line of code will look like:

@echo The CD is loading now...

The second line of the code tells the .bat file to open to your index.html file. If want to open a file by another file (eg readme.txt), then it would read:

@start readme.txt

Make sure you leave the last two lines untouched (@cls and @exit) - they must always appear last. Save the changes and you are done. That that's all you need to create your own HTML autorun CD.

Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client. Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.

Blocked Attachments
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.


Forward Workaround While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead. Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.

Compression Workaround

Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.

How can I email an invitations that I created from Print Workshop 2009. I Published project to email but it did not go through.


First when you created it, you named it right?
Ok go into your email client and compose the email to whom you are going to send it. Then attach the invitation . Depends on what email client you are using. You should either see the word "attach" or the word "file" and clicking on file you will see the word attach. when you click on attach, a window will open up and allow you to browse to the folder where the invitation is. click on it. and it should attach it to your email. When you hit send, it will go to the recipient.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I don't seem to be able to send photos by Kodak Easyshare e-mail even though I am on line and the address is correct.


Ditch Kodak Easyshare and just use your email program:
Attachment basics When you send photos in e-mail, the photos go along for the ride as attachments, just like any other file you add to an e-mail.
To attach a photo in Outlook:
  1. Click New to open a Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject boxes as usual and type any message you wish to accompany the photos.
  3. Click Insert File (the paperclip icon), locate your file through the Insert File box, click the file's name and then click the Insert button. If you wish to add multiple files from within the same folder, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking multiple files, then click the Insert button.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for any other files you wish to attach.
  5. Click Send.
In Outlook Express:
  1. Click Create Mail to open a New Message window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button, locate the file in the Insert Attachment box and click Attach. Use Ctrl-click to select multiple files.
  4. Click Send.
In Netscape Mail:
  1. Click New Message to open the Compose window.
  2. Fill in the To and Subject lines, and type in your message.
  3. Click the Attach button or, in Netscape 6, click in the empty Attachments box.
  4. Select your file in the Enter Files To Attach dialog and click Open.
  5. To attach multiple files, repeat Steps 3 and 4.
  6. Click Send.
