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 suggestion.


I will certainly bring this 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 frustrated.

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 Outlook Mail.
