Things which can cause problems: Email client software for sender or receiver OR Yahoo groups processing software.
Things that can't cause problems: Your Internet connection (cable vs. DSL vs. dialup), service provider, brand of PC, brand of OS, web browser.... etc. If other people see it as a .jpg attachment, then that's how it went out, so the problem is on the receiving side. Since it seems to work now - I think we have a glitch in the Yahoo group processing SW.

To try and help solve the mystery, I'm using a cox.net cable connection
and can't view Francelle's images ( as I mentioned earlier). Let's
be hopeful that the issue will be resolved soon - I can't wait to see all
of Francelle's seedlings.

- Thank you, Jim, for the

problem to my husbandʼs attention. Since I am in a family of
computer experts, I have been content to remain illiterate about
them. They are a wonderful invention that can make me wonderfully
- Yes, I use Outlook. This
is the first time I have had this problem though. I was given high
speed internet from Qwest this winter, and since then I have unbelievable
problems sending my e-mail. I almost wish I were still on the old
dial-up system. It was slow, but it worked.
- Iʼll get this fixed right
away. I have 300+ seedlings getting ready to bloom, and some of
them are pretty. A few may even be pretty and have good stalks.

- Hi Francelle, I assume you are using Outlook. It changes your
attachments to winmail.dat files unreadable by many. You have to set it
to send mail as plain text or html. You have it set for rich text and
that creates the problem. Microsoft wants everyone to buy and use only
