My photos seem to take up masses of memory and therefore take ages to attach to e-mail, whereafter nobody can open them anyway! My husband thinks I should change something on the camera rather than PC. What can I do?

It seems that the dbx file size is reduced either because: 1. The repair tool modify and reduce its size, remove the emails. or 2. The last time when you restart Outlook Express, it reduce the dbx file size and remove the emails. If you still have the original large dbx file, then you can recover all the emails inside it with OE-Mail Recovery at http://www.oemailrecovery.com/inbox-repair.html
This tool will never modify the original dbx file, instead, it will output the recovered emails into an output folder so that you can either open or import it back to Outlook Express. If you do not have the original large dbx file, then it is still possible to recover your emails. As long as you have stored the .dbx file on your local disk or drive, the email data may still exist on your disk/drive. You can you can search Google utility to scan the whole disk/drive and recover the emails for you.
set up a dropbox on a p.c then put same dropbox on phone. then upload the file to dropbox and then access it on p.c's dropbox. Then open file in pcpaint and resize photo down in size to get the size within gmail allowed file size and save file.
size of file will be the issue you might be able to reduce the resolution of the camera to take photos of the file size.gmail can handle.
I think you are scanning to email. Your scan is probably creating a file larger than your mail server limit. You can use "Compact PDF" mode on your machine to drastically reduce the file size, or you can have your IT person increase the size of the allowed attachments on the mail server.
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.
I take it your camera shows as a mass storage device when you click onto my computer.
1) Double click on your C: drive, when its open RMB single click on the back ground. A box will pop up and offer several options, select NEW the FOLDER.
This will put a folder on your C: drive. With the title new folder highligted in blue, just type the word Photos and hit return. This should rename the new folder to photos.
2) Double LMB click on your photos folder, this should open it up, click on the double square icon in the top right hand corner of the window to reduce its size. Then click on the blue title bar of the window and move it to the right hand side of your screen.
3) Double LMB click on you mass storage device folder. It should open, you may see one or probably 2 folders inside. One is your camera memory, the other is the memory card. One at a time, double click on the a folder, when it opens, are there any files inside ?
If not, just arrow back (Top left hand side of window) and open the next folder. Here there should be your photographs.
Once found got to the menu bar select Edit - Select all. Then back on the menu bar select Copy.
Move your curser to the Photos folder you just created and from the menu bar select File - Paste.
This should copy over all your photos. Once completed to you satisfaction, go back to your camera (MASS STORAGE) and edit - select all then file - delete.
Ditch Kodak Easyshare and just use your email program:
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:
Click New to open a Message window.
Fill in the To and Subject boxes as usual and type any message you wish to accompany the photos.
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.
Repeat Step 3 for any other files you wish to attach.
In Outlook Express:
Click Create Mail to open a New Message window.
Fill in the To and Subject lines and type in your message.
Click the Attach button, locate the file in the Insert Attachment box and click Attach. Use Ctrl-click to select multiple files.
In Netscape Mail:
Click New Message to open the Compose window.
Fill in the To and Subject lines, and type in your message.
Click the Attach button or, in Netscape 6, click in the empty Attachments box.

When sending photos as e-mail attachments, the image (file) size should not be too large. Use the included image viewing program called Image Expert to save photos in reduced size.
