Windows 7: can't email attached or downsized photos

can't email attached or downsized photos

I had had no problems sending photos that make slide shows out thru Live Mail until I tried to burn some photos to a DVD. I tried and tried and the simple way wouldn't work. The PC would shoot the discs (the right kind too) out saying there was no disc there.

Friends told me to try to burn thru Window Media Player or Window Media Center. Still I had problems, until finally after many tries it worked! I was following Window's instructions of how to burn!)

Story not over! Then when I tried to send any email out with an attached photo Windows told me I had too many files on my server and to put them into folders. This wasn't true. The same thing happened when I tried to send photos out thru the "slide show" "send to mail recipient" command. The computer would actually tell me, while the email sat in the outbox that there was no copy, "message lost" when I tried to send (600-800mb or small size photos)

Techies at the St--les office store can't figure it out either and say maybe the photos I kept trying to burn somehow got on my mail sever...but how???? They say my system is corrupt and Windows 7 has to be reinstalled. Oh no really! Help! someone with more savy than me.....thanks, Lise

FIRST, please use normal fonts. They take up much, much, much less space.

Seond, if you are trying to send 600-800 Mbs it will never work

Could we get more information about your network setup, your ISP, etc?

What do you mean by "my mail server"; your ISP's? Hotmail's? gmail's?
Which email program are you using? Or are you using web-based email?
