This question was answered on July 13, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The reason is that rotten sods who develop viruses and Trojan horses often use a graphic to hide their code in There is a type of security called steganography that uses any graphic to hide say, passwords or stuff you do not want someone to see It doesn’t change the graphic – it looks the same but the code made to compose the graphic now holds additional code – the hidden message.

You can always attach your pics without changing to HTML – use the 'attach' icon on the taskbar

You can attach from a CD just like from the hard drive

The attaching is a function of the user (usually) so the only things that go should be those you 'attach' yourself Having said that, stranger things have happened.
