TO E-MAIL A PICTURE USING THE FILE & FOLDER TASKS FUNCTION (Outlook Express):

Note: This is the best way to e-mail a picture because it automatically makes every picture you send smaller in size so it doesnít print out on multiple sheets of paper on the recipientís end.

1) Double-click on the My Documents folder on the ďdesktop

2) Double-click on the My Pictures folder (or whatever folder has the picture you want to send).

4) Click on E-mail this file on the left under File and Folder Tasks. This should automatically start your Outlook Express e-mail program. If you donít see E-mail this file, click once on the Folders button at the top of the window.

Note: If you still donít see E-mail this file on the left even after clicking on the Folders button, do the following:

2) Click to put a black dot next to: § Show common tasks in folders.

3) Click on OK.
