Windows 7: WLM won't let me forward photos

WLM won't let me forward photos

I figured out that I could forward my own personal photos in my computer as attachments, but when I receive photos in an email from someone else that I which to forward, I get the window that says all of the pictures will be lost & do I still want to send the email. Well, no. I don't. The photos are the whole point of the email.

What is the way around this?

There is a posts about this in the mail and browser forum. The only way to do so seems to be that you have to save them to your desktop or where ever and compose a new mail and then attach them to new mail. That seems to be the best option.

I may or may not have made my first screenshot. I don't know how to get it to show y'all an actual picture instead of whatever "ATTACH..." is.

Thanks for the reply, BrightBlessings. I figured I had posted this in the wrong place. I'll try to find the thread you mentioned.

FWIW, I truly don't like having to do the complicated square dance that Windows 7 makes me do just to do something that was so simple in the horrid Vista. I thought this was going to be an improvement! However, Mr. Gates is apparently not interested in my opinion. End of rant.

Your screenshot is fine. Youobviously found the Paper Clip sign and ised it correctly. I use Windows Live mail and frequebtly forward emails with images attched with no problem. I have to say i have never seen the message that you get. What version of MLM are you using. When you try to forward a message do you use the icon in this screenshot? If so do you just hit where the red dot is or first click on the down facing arrow head ringed in blue?
