Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Am I "new"??
- Hi again,
Either I wasn't very clear, or I didn't understand yours in the first place.
You wanted to put graphics into an email.
In my case, I have all my photos and graphics stored online. So...often, instead of attaching them I copy them into my email.
Example: If I have managed to create a snowflake in PaintShop and want to show that to, let's say, Purevizhun...then I copy/paste it instead of attaching it. Makes sense?

I have no need to copy/paste online images.
PhotoMail is installed.
Thanks for the email btw. :-P

I uninstalled it.
