Hi,

I am currently using the IE 8 browser. I was trying to send an email with a photo and a clip art pasted to the body of the email instead of attached to the email. I copy the object and then click paste in the email, but all I see is the outline of the object but no photo or clip art. I then tried it using Chrome and Mozilla but got the same results. I know I was able to paste objects to emails in the past, has something changed?

Thanks!

Try dragging and dropping the item into the body of the email.

Check the filetype of the object. In my Email the object must be in .jpg.

Both of your posts were very helpful. If I drag and drop a .jpg file into the email it works. But lets say I have a piece of clip art that is not .jpg. Can I convert the file to .jpg?

Thanks!

The easiest way is copy and paste into paint (CTRL + V) then save as .jpg

cinque8,

If you are having trouble copying the picture, you could always try pressing the PrintScreen button on your keyboard, then paste into MS-Paint, like Mike said above.
