Why don't images show up in emails I send that I pasted a lesson into?
When pasting the rich text representation of a document on the clipboard into an email program you need to check a few settings to ensure that the images will be sent with the email.
This lesson will show you the settings to check for Apple Mail and Outlook Express.
In Apple Mail you need to make sure your email message is sent using the Rich Text format.
Apple Mail allows you to set a default message format when composing email messages. In the Compose tab of the preferences window (1) you can set the default Message Format to Plain Text or Rich Text (2). This setting will apply to all new email messages you write.
Mail: Toggling the Setting of an Existing Message
If you normally send email messages as Plain Text then you can change the formatting on a per-message basis. After creating a new message select Make Rich Text from the Format menu.
You can now paste the document you exported to the clipboard as rich text into the email.
Example: Outlook Express 6
In order to send the document images in email messages you send from Outlook you need to ensure that the Mail Sending Format in Options > Send is set to HTML (1).
After checking this setting click on the HTML Settings... button (2).
Make sure that Send pictures with messages is checked as well.
