send emails with embedded pictures that will open in outlook plain text

Hi I would like to send quotation emails, that include our company logo and
pictures inside.

i currently use word as an attachment, but would prefer to work straight
from outlook, is there any way of doing this that will work for customers
who do not have html set up as their email preference.

thanks tim

Outlook has rules to reject email with certain words. But spammers have
caught on and now they are sending email where the text is actually a picture
embedded in the email. Outlook can't look for words in a picture. So, Outlook
needs to let me move all the email with embedded pictures in it, to the junk
mail folder. I can sort out my friends' fun mail later. I just want that spam
out of my inbox!

I am having a problem when sending emails with attached files that exceed 3MB
in size. They "hangup" in my outbox and send multiple copies - sometimes as
many as 18 to one recipient. I am using Outlook 2007. Any suggestions?

When sending emails with attachments (pictures) outlook creates an error
message that is blank in the errors tab. The email stays in the outbox but
the recipient has actually received the email, but it appears that it has
never been sent.

Any ideas welcome !

I recently switched to Outlook from Outlook Express. When e-mails are
received with embedded pictures, they display properly in Outlook Express but
do not display at all in Outlook.

Is this related to a security setting in Outlook that I can change to allow
these pictures to be displayed?

PLEASE HELP!!!!

I keep getting the error - Does not recognize one or more names. This
happens with every email address I try that is not in my address book.

Word 2003 templates using Headings 1, 2 and 3 are used by my client to create HTML emails send through an exchange service to 10,000+ MS office 2003 users and 100 trial MS Office 2010 users.

The emails look fine in MS office 2003 but the Headings become numbered with Section or Article when opened in Outlook 2010.  The styles in normal.dotm or normalemail.dotm are not numbered. It makes no difference if the Use CSS for appearance of messages is on or off.

when i get an e-mail with a pictures file, and open the pictures with windows
picture and fax viewer in outlook express, the viewer will start scrolling
thru all the picture files stored in the internet temporary files folder.
anyone know about this problem and how to fix it so the viewer just scrolls
the pictures in the e-mail?? i've never seen or herd of this. please help.

thanks,
higgy

Since last week, every time that I send an email with a picture attachment to
one recipient, recipient receives anywhere from 6 to 25 identical emails
which none of them can be opened.
I use Windows XP with Outlook Express 6 and Kaspersky Internet Security 7
which I installed last September and never did I have this problem until
lastweek. I have ran the Anti Virus manually, cleared all cookies, temporary
files, etc and still have this problem. Any advise as what might be
causing this behaviour all of a sudden and how to fix it will be greatly
appreciated.

When I forward a previously received email with embedded pictures to contacts not having Outlook, they cannot open/view the pictures.  They see the box with small "x" in upper left hand corner. Only contacts using "MSOutlook" programs will be able to see pictures.  Not virus porgram, or server issues.  Have done sending tests with my server provider. Seems like only MSOutlook to another MSOutlook program can view pictures.  If I click on "forward", then "copy" the pictures, then "paste" into another totally new email, contacts can view them.  Frustrating, doing all of this to permit viewing forwarded emails with picgtures embedded.   Only original pictures sent to my contacts as attachments (.jpg, etc.) can be view by all email contacts. Outlook 2003 worked perfectly.  What's up with 2010??? 

I want to send a link to a shared folder that will open automatically when
the user opens the email. Does such an event trigger exist?

I have an elderly woman using Outlook for her email sever. She gets most of
her emails from me but occasionally I send her emails with embedded screens
shots with directions on how to do a specific task. She gets regular text
emails and ones with attachments but not the other. I see nothing in the
Options that would inhibit this. Any suggestions? Thanks for looking.

I hope I am in the correct Discussion Group as I could find nothing about an
Outlook Express group.

I have a friend that I sent an email with embedded pictures. He opened it
with no problems. He then forwarded it on to one of his friends and he
responded back with "[Only the first part of this message is displayed. The
entire message has been turned into a text attachment, which you can retrieve
by selecting Download. Once downloaded, open it with a word processor or text
editor for reading.]

Jack, sorry, but I'm not able to open this kind of message. You've sent
these before where they say to open with a word processor or text editor. I
don't know what that means nor do I apparently have that kind of equipment.
In any event, there's no way I can open them.

As I am supposed to know what I am doing (I have everyone fooled) he dumped
the problem back in my lap. I sent the email directly to Jack's friend and he
was able to open and view with no issues; which leads me to believe the
problem is with Jack's computer not his friends. I am at a loss as to what
could be the issue. Jack has an older computer but is using WinXP.

Any help would be appreciated.

I want to put a script in a hyperlink in a PowerPoint Presentation
that will open an Outlook Email with my address filled out (like they
do on some web sites).

Is that possible and if so does anyone have any sample code I could
use?

Thanks!

Hi,

If I open (not preview) received emails with embedded pictures, these are
initially diplayed as text. That is intended per my settings. Next I click on
the information line above the header and choose "display as HTML" which causes
the email to display in HTML with all the pictures displaying as red X's. Next I
choose "Download pictures" and nothing happens, still the red X's.

But the same message which is still displaying in the preview pane shows the
pictures. Now: how do I make the separate Window display the same pictures? May
be I need to refresh the window but I can't find a refresh option. So, the only
way is close the message, open it again, select the HTML option again, download
the pictures again and then they display. Quite annoying.

Besides enabling HTML and picture download by default, is there any other
setting I've not seen so far? Whats wrong?

Thx for your response

my Outlook version: 2003 (11.80.10.8107) SP2

I can send email with attachment on Windows Vista, but no one can open

I have an email with and attachment that will not transmit. When I try to
delete it a window opens telling me the email cannot be opened because it
outlook has already began transmitting. But it doesn't transmit and I can't
delete it.

I am running Outlook 2003 on Windows 7. I am using WORD as the default
editor. When I forward an email with embedded pictures, the pictures flicker
(very annoying), and it seems to take a long time to send the email. Has
anyone else run into this problem, and if so, is there a resolution?
