I can't send photos, what do I do?

Question

I sent an email with 5 pictures attached. It is hung up in the "out box". When I try to delete it I get a message that I can't delete because it is already sending. I cannot send as long as this file is in the send box. Thanks Lou Prentiss

This problem you have encountered may be due to the size of emails you are allowed to send Some of the free software services like Hotmail or Gmail limit the size of email attachments you can send If they get too big, they either won't send or the email will fail You can do a few things to get around this One is send a smaller amount of photos over a few different emails Another option would be to use a photo sharing service like Flickr (Flickr.com) Flickr allows you to share photos online and if you have a blog, it's a great service because your photos can be uploaded directly to your blog There are many online free photo sharing services you might want to look into.
