Why Can't I Email Photos Using Windows 7 and Dial-up Internet Access?

I have Windows 7, I can't email family pictures. I do have dial up, no fast internet where I'm at. Windows Live will not let me email the pictures, I did change my email to hotmail.com, didn't work. Can any one tell me what to do?


Thank you all.

I just purchased a custom built computer and after one day of Win7, I told him to take it out and we put in XP Pro 32bit. The persons for developing Win7 had to be on drugs. no logical email program, Live Mail will not empty your Delete folder on exit and you can't Request a Read Receipt, just a few of the items that chapped my 'you know what'. I did leave in Office 2010 but again, it's loaded with 'BS'. Microsoft is busting a gut to introduce Windows 8, and I don't have to question 'Why?'


I am still licensed for Win7 and have the Product Code (& also with XP Pro) just in case Microsoft does anything funny .... have you noticed that it's almost impossible to purchase a desktop/laptop now without Win7??? [the design team needs to have a drug test then shot!]

I was told that this Tutorial was pretty good [I almost threw the computer out the window before telling him to rip Win7 out, so I never did order it]

Install windows xp this will allow you to send e-mail attachments but remember dial-up is not fast so compress any large photo/file before you press send hope this helps good luck.

Try using Skydrive and link the email to it. It will take larger uploads that your email might not. I use Windows 7 with no problems on 2 computers but I use Windows Office Live which is basicly hotmail.


I have no problems emailing photos or documents but with larger amounts I use Skydrive. It seems faster for large files.
