John  --  I'm having a heck of a time opening these new thumbnail attachments.  My mail program is Outlook Express.  The performance is erratic, but I can't open most of the thumbnails.  If multiples are sent, I may be able to open one, but not the others.  Even with the "05I1, a holdover" message that I sent, I could only open two of the three thumbnails.  With some messages, I can't open the single thumbnail.  Bottom line:  I can't open most of the photos our members are sending.  --  Griff

I think that whether you have to click on something or not (as in the past not the current situation) had to do with settings in you mail program. I may be wrong.

But now I have to decide what to do about this mess.

Some of my options are:

 1.  Set it up as a mailing list at Mallorn like Yahoo! used to be,
       forwarding the message with the attachment to people.

   2.  Set it up as a mailing list at Mallorn like Yahoo! is now,
       inlining the image from the hort.net servers.  The images
       would still show up in the archives. (Involves a separate step and a browser window to download the picture meaning you have to wait while it downloads as opposed to the picture coming down with the email (slows down your mail) but you have the picture with out waiting each time)

   3.  Leave the list at Yahoo! and try to write a pre-archive 'wrapper'
       that grabs attachments from Yahoo!, sticks them on the message, and
       then puts it into the archives.  This will work until Yahoo!
       changes things again.

Funny that..  I have always had to click to download the pictures and select an editor which took 2 extra steps and much time. Now I get a nice but very small thumbnail and a fast opening larger picture when I click on the "x". So whatever was changed is working much better for me. (I am on a wintel xp, using ie and FireFox browsers)

I am looking for attachments and there is nothing there.  Is something wrong with the system or has it changed IRIS PHOTOS? My photos go thru ok but where are the others?
