View Full Version : hotmail issue with Pics
09-29-2005, 09:46 PM
Lately, I've been having some issues with hotmail, related to attached pics.
I can take pics with my digital cam....put them on my PC that I'm pretty confident is protected....and get "virus" failures from hotmail on 1 pic, when I've already attached 2-3 from the same series.
I recieve pics in emails, try to save them, and am unable....yet can sometimes forward them to someone else, who CAN.

stop using hotmail...I had similiar problems and finally moved on
I haven't used hotmail in quite some time. I got tired of all the problems with it, mainly spam. I would reccommend getting a gmail account.

I also have a gmail account.
The problem at this point is how "dispersed" my hotmail account is....for personal/family and business contacts.
Specific problems that I don't think it would help are like, when I get pics from my brother, and need to resize them and pass them on to a list of family/friends....I suppose I could forward his emails with pics to my gmail, and download them from there as a workaround?
Hotmail definitely has some "suck"...but I guess the price is right.
Just send out emails to everyone that has your hotmail address and tell them you are cancelling your account. Tell them to send all future emails to your gmail address. I don't have any problems with pics sent to my gmail.
