Windows 7: Pictures in MSN mail

Pictures in MSN mail

I use at times both Hotmail & MSN mail.

Using hotmail I can use all the pictures that I have.

When I use MSN mail for some reason I CAN NOT get into the pictures.

Any ideas appreciated

Thanks

Specifically, tell us the steps of what you try to do ( adding a pic to email?), and what happens, any errors you get with MSN (is this Windows Live Mail?). A Guy

On msn.com there is a link to hotmail which takes you to the login page for live.com. They should all be the same thing i.e. Microsoft's web based email. But if you downloaded and installed "Windows Live Mail" that's Microsoft's local email client. The "Live" of the latter means some parts of your service are stored on the web to differentiate it from Windows Mail which is 100% local. But with "Hotmail" it's 100% on the web.

However, I can think of one case where a name@msn.com login (because it's very old) will not work for one special-purpose program that does work for a name@live.com login. But that program has nothing to do with email.

I'm used to seeing a lot of older folks who use MSN as their dialup provider, and they access their email though their MSN browser ( a version of IE), or their sign in page. It's a whole other world, lol. A Guy

Thanks for your answer.

I looked into this after reading your post. To begin with I have used this service for
at least 6 years and pay $19.95 a year for it, which I had forgotten. I am certain that
I signed up for it because of the advanced mail capabilities with the increased storage.
It is called " Windows Live Hotmail Plus " and here is the Microsoft description:

The Windows Live Hotmail Plus yearly subscription of $19.95 plus tax includes 10 Gigabytes of total Windows Live Hotmail account space, the ability to send larger attachments, and exemption from the account expiration policy. No third party advertising. Just feature tips and product info from Microsoft. Refund only available if cancelled within one month from purchase and automatically renews yearly unless cancelled. You will receive a renewal letter 30 days prior to the renewal date.

I noticed your sig and would like to make one myself. Did you make it using HTML and
creating your own address.
