Windows 7: Sky Drive drives me crazy

Sky Drive drives me crazy

My wife uses Windows Live Mail for her E Mail. Lately when she tries to send a photo Sky Drive grabs the picture. She has Windows 7 Office 10 and no Sliver Light or Sky Drive. How can I stop Sky Drive?

I experienced this problem when I was using Windows Live Mail. I found the only way of preventing this was to send the photo as part of the email & not as an attachment. In other words the photo or photos are shown below the email text. It does mean having to add each photo rather that an album.

If she has Office 2010, you could switch over to Outlook & still use the WLM email address. It is actually very easy to set up Outlook when you already have WLM set up. Copying contacts across needs to be done as well, which is a bit more complicated.

Not sure if it's the same in live mail but if you switch from rich text to plain text and the message will not default to onedrive and show the basic paperclip symbol to send as attachment,

I'm sure there are setting for this but I do not have live mail to point you to them

I read somewhere if you click the paperclip icon, it will be an attachment instead of a photo email
