finally i was able to open the file

Ehab Tutor :

as i told you i got the page of the blog with the album but the pictures are not there

Customer:

oh, so no chance in getting pictures?

Ehab Tutor :

its most probably that the security settings for the email

is preventing this blog page to show in your email

Customer:

can i change my settings in outlook?

Ehab Tutor :

i am trying to check it

Ehab Tutor :

it is suggested that its in the outlook security setting

Ehab Tutor :

i am researching it

Ehab Tutor :

which version of outlook are you using?

Customer:

2007

Ehab Tutor :

ok

Ehab Tutor :

i am following a new lead, it states in the page that the pictures are available on sky drive

Ehab Tutor :

which is one of the services of windows live

Ehab Tutor :

sky drive is an online storage for files

Ehab Tutor :

try going to https://skydrive.live.com

Ehab Tutor :

and logging in with your account and tell me what happens

check this

Ehab Tutor :

did you try to open this email from your live account?

Ehab Tutor :

r u there?

just waiting

Ehab Tutor :

did you install microsoft silverlight?

Customer:

yes

Customer:

Ehab Tutor :

try to open your windows live email and check this email again

Ehab Tutor :

Ehab Tutor :

did this work?

Customer:

i just set up email , and forwarded. let me check now

Ehab Tutor :

ok

Ehab Tutor :

most probably its not possible to check such an email using outlook, since it requires microsoft silverlight to be able to view the gallery itself

the account is still setting up

Ehab Tutor :

why are you setting up a new account?

Ehab Tutor :

isn't your email at live already?

Customer:

i don't know what my hotmail email is i am on that page, have an inbox. How do i tell

Ehab Tutor :

which page?

Ehab Tutor :

do you have a hotmail email?

Ehab Tutor :

or a live email?

Customer:

i use my gmail account to log in

Ehab Tutor :

oh the problem is that you won't be able most probably to see the email unless you have a hotmail account

Ehab Tutor :

you can setup one in this case

Ehab Tutor :

and forward the email from your gmail account to your hotmail account

Ehab Tutor :

as sky drive sharing is a hotmail/ live service

Customer:

give me a minute. i will forward email again. please.

Ehab Tutor :
