Why dont they work!

You attach something (By PM) and the receiver.............cant see it!



Lynski Report 21 Sep 2012 01:14

If I remember it correctly, the "Get attachments" button is at the bottom of the message.

The receiver should check for it.

PM me if you want me to send you a test attachment, Gins.


Susan Report 21 Sep 2012 09:14


That att you sent me some time ago I did not get that either.

Sue :-(


Gins Report 21 Sep 2012 12:05


Everytime I send an attchment the recipient never seems to recieve it!

Ive sent one to Linski, lets see if she can find it

:-( :-S

Ive sent many attachments, no problem, recipients have always received them, as Lynski said are they clicking on the get attachments tab.

I sent 3 yesterday, in fact this is one of the things that work the best since the new design came in.

If you want to send me one as well, i can check it


Lynski Report 21 Sep 2012 22:21

Thank you


Gins Report 22 Sep 2012 17:11

Thanks Phil

Ive sent you a PM


Gins Report 22 Sep 2012 17:15

Just checked my Sent Items and the PM didnt wonder you didnt get it Linski!

I have to wait about 3-6 mins to get into my Sent box :-(


Lynski Report 22 Sep 2012 21:31

That's not good, Gins.

I have just sent you another message in reply to your "trying it again" message.


Annx Report 23 Sep 2012 20:05

I found sending one attachment worked and was received, but when I tried to send a PM with 2 attachments together to the same person they only received the first one!!!!! :-S


George_of_Westbury Report 24 Sep 2012 18:58

I knew i shouldnt have opened my trap in my earlier post, but now i just tried three times to send one attachment, and it just does not attach to the message.

Is it still a problem somewhere



Gins Report 24 Sep 2012 20:01

Thanks George

Not just me then!


Phil......where are you!


Gins Report 25 Sep 2012 20:06

Hi Phil

Not heard back as yet?

Can I also add, that when I (Try to) look in 'Sent' takes an 'age' to come through, and more than often, I get 'error'

:-S :-S
