      okay, it disappeared for me; I suppose it disappeared for you too.

      All I'm looking for is a sensible way to dependably send embedded pics. Surely there must be a way.

        okay, some of the conversation from a previous thread is at the bottom.
      I am inserting a JPG here:  

      I suspect it has disappeared when you read it.
      Here's the story again...........
      I can right click and copy an image from a website somewhere or in a Yahoo email
      and insert it in a NEW email, and it appears to me as part of the email,
      but, on sending it, recipients see nothing.
      I can go to Gmail and COMPOSE and paste the image, with text before and after it,  and send it to me at Yahoo,
      go to Yahoo.com/Mail and receive the email with the pic embedded,
      then forward that same email to me at Yahoo, and receive only the text.
      I'm usiing Yahoo online Mail Classic Free. Have been for a dozen years or more. And had this problem "all the time".
      Now, after pasting the pic above, I will go to Paint, paste, save, then attach the File.
      I predict you will see the attachment okay, but not a pic above.  Here it goes......

      You have to post your image somewhere else in the internet, them link it in your webmail, i.e. your image must be externally hosted in the internet to be accessible, then, you insert it.

      Sorry, but that is just so not true.

      I own a couple of photo sharing groups here on Yahoogroups and members send photos to the groups all the time, and nobody on either of those groups has to do that.

      In fact, the members of the groups are primarily not even registered with Yahoogroups as members, most of them I added manually, they receive messages via email and I would be willing to bet there are some of them that do not even know there is a web site for the group.

      One of the groups is made up entirely of co-workers at the factory I work at, the group is growing by word of mouth, co-workers hear other workers talking about pictures that were sent recently and the rest is history.  When someone asks me how they can become part of it, I ask them for their email address and I just add them.

      And we all send pictures, embedded in the text message, with text above the image and beneath the image.

      Once in a while a member asks how to do that. 

      It seems the ones who can't do it are insistent on using some kind of software that just won't do it.

      Personally, I am using Mozilla, both Firefox and Thunderbird.

      Thunderbird has the typical icons atop the page,  File, Edit, and so on, and one of them is  "Insert".

      If you click on that, it opens up a window asking you what you want to "insert", whether it be a link or an image and so on, I think there are about 8 options.

      If you click on "Image" yet another little window opens asking you to browse to wherever the image is on YOUR computer, and click on it.

      When you do that, it is immediately placed in the email you are typing, and you can go right ahead and keep typing more text below the image.

      This is not adding an attachment.

      If you check the settings for this group, it states that attachments are "Stored on Site", which is in contrast to two other options, one being to send attachments in email messages, the other being not to accept attachments at all.

      This means that if you attach a picture, in order to see it, a member would need to go to the group web site to see it.

      However, even though this group is set to store attachments on site and not include them in messages, you can still send them through the group and have text after the image, in other words embed the image into the text.

      Like this:

      I took that picture myself at the steam train festival in Rock Island, Illinois, a couple of weeks ago.

      Now, unless there is something about this group that I do not know, such as moderators blocking the image I just included, it should go right through the group and you should be able to see it.

      The potential problem is that messages to this group are moderated and a moderator may take my image out, just to attempt to prove me wrong.

      We will see.

      There is no limit to how many images you can insert into a message, other than the message being too large for Yahoogroups, and their limit is huge.

       I just don't get it........
      if I receive an email with embedded pics
      I can copy the contents
      then paste to a NEW email
      edit it contents
      and send it to whomever
      with the pics embedded.

      BUT if I have a JPG and want to embed it in a new email
      instead of attaching it,
      I can't come up with a way to get it done.
      A simple copy-and-paste won't work.
      I've pasted it into WORD, with text before and after it,
      copied the whole mess,
      pasted into a NEW email
      and I get all the text along with a place-holder box for the JPG.
      What do I have to do to build an email with a pic in it?
      Other people can apparently do it, or I wouldn't receive such emails.

      This has happened to me on various computers, with various OSs.

      Sure would like to solve this.
