it just pastes as the text view slide show and download all

Ehab Tutor :

are you sure you right click on the link and choose " copy shortcut"

Ehab Tutor :

it does not give me the option to copy short cut / it says copy hyperlink

Ehab Tutor :

what are you using to see your emails?

Customer:

outlook / i also tried from google website. same thing

Ehab Tutor :

what happens when you press on this hyperlink

Ehab Tutor :

?

Customer:

nothing. it

Ehab Tutor :

and the wpostx file you sent me is an attachment to this email right?

Customer:

correct.

Ehab Tutor :

i am still working on the file while we are talking

Ehab Tutor :

trying to open it

Customer:

i researched and saw that windows live writer is supposed to open the file. I can't figure out how to do it

Customer:

thank you

Ehab Tutor :

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

Ehab Tutor :

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

Ehab Tutor :

are you still there

Ehab Tutor :

?

Customer:

i added the file to sky drive. it will not open. it defaults to

Ehab Tutor :

what do you mean by added the file to sky drive

Ehab Tutor :

after you login to skydrive there is a link for photos on the left side

Ehab Tutor :

when you press on it can you see anything?

Customer:

windows photo gallary - yes i added the file look at the top.

Ehab Tutor :

i can't see it of course

Ehab Tutor :

its in your live account

Customer:

defaults to windows phot gallery ............can't open file / file format not supported or you don't have latest version

Ehab Tutor :

what file did you add?

Ehab Tutor :

do you mean the wpostx file

Customer:

the 1.8 wpostx file

Ehab Tutor :

sky drive is like an online storage

Ehab Tutor :

where you can keep files, photos, etc..

Ehab Tutor :

the person who sent you the email

Ehab Tutor :

uploaded those photos on skydrive

Ehab Tutor :

for sharing with his contacts

Ehab Tutor :

is he a friend of yours?

Customer:

yes

Ehab Tutor :

check this

Ehab Tutor :

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

Ehab Tutor :

r u there?

Customer:

yes i did. same thing it defaults to windows gallery

Ehab Tutor :

its needed to be able to view the sky drive shared photos, maybe this is the problem

Ehab Tutor :

how did it go?

Customer:

just waiting

Ehab Tutor :

did you install microsoft silverlight?

Customer:

yes

Customer:

what do i do now

Ehab Tutor :

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

Ehab Tutor :

any news?

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

Customer:

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 can't figure out how to get the email in live.

Ehab Tutor :

just clink on inbox

Ehab Tutor :

login with your email and password XXXXX

Ehab Tutor :

and then click on inbox to check your email

Customer:

hotmail?

Ehab Tutor :

yes

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 :

did you create a hotmail email first?

Customer:

i added gmail to open in hotmail.

Customer:

Ehab Tutor :

its 1.8 mb

Customer:

the attachment is 1.8 the email is larger.

Ehab Tutor :

ok

Ehab Tutor :

i tried to help you as much as i could

Customer:

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
