Posting e-mails-

Postby Frank » Sun Jul 01, 2012 8:31 am

I have just been sent an e-mail that I think might be of interest to the folks here, is there any way that I can post it up?

Could any repliers please remember that I am not computer literate.

I have always thought url means throwing something at the wall in frustration at not understanding anything.

To my knowledge, the only way to accomplish exactly what you are asking for is my installing a "Mod".....which is a coded (HTML) program in the forum software......that allows this functionality. The problem with that is two-fold: One, installing Mods is incredibly complicated....something to do with the "skin" I use for the forum (in other words, all the graphics you see that make the site, like images, icons, smilies, etc.), and I am believe ot or not, a lightweight when it comes to this computer programming crap; and two, the Mod itself opens a bit of a pandora's box in terms of spam, for some reason.

That said, the way I post the contents of an email is simply to open it and, cut&paste the text in, and save any images as a JPEG file and plop it in. It might not look exactly the the original email, but it generally does the job.

Hope that helps. :ugeek:

Cheers Tom, I read your pm first, I will have a go and if I have no luck will send to you, there is some text and 5 pics. Things are a bit hectic at the moment, will have a go on Wednesday probably. I really do need to learn this stuff if possible.

Cheers,

Frank
