I often receive or try to send pictures that come and go as red Xs in squares. My recipents tell me they cannot open the pictures and I cannot open such pictures either. I have tried using the following programs to no avail:
Windows pic and fax viewer
Windows media player
Have also been unable to learn the extensions on many of these pictures that were sent. Can anyone advise what I am doing wrong or what I can do to access pictures that arrive as red Xs or how to send pictures so they will not arrive as red Xs and unaccessible to my recipients? It seems to make no difference whether I send the pictures as attachments or within the email itself.
My PC is WinXP SP2, IE browser, Ram 512, Outlook Express email program. Only extra visual program I have is Irfanview.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
