You did not mention that you had done this, so if you have not.....
Click the iPhoto menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen
Click the General tab
Next to "Email photos using"......have you selected the mail application that you want to use?
Click the Accounts tab to verify that the settings for your mail application are entered here.

Thank you, your right I didn't mention that, I have done that already and it works fine whilst using mail just not iPhoto. I just wanted to do it using the template as it was a photo of my grandson for him and he would have liked the template.
I should have mentioned that, also that I removed the plist file.
If it doesn't get sorted it is no great biggie but would be nice to be able to use the templates for the grandchildren.
Thanks for your reply.

Hi Alison - I have been having the same issue with my desktop. Also, a sudden thing. Now, I have a new Macbook Pro and it is doing exactly the same thing. I was wondering if you ever got an answer. I spent quite a bit of time with Apple today, but got no resolution.

Alison - I got both my desktop and Macbook Pro to send a photo from email. I was on the phone with Apple support to explain that neither one of my devices would send a photo.
*Mail > Preferences>Accounts> Account Information
In the Outgoing Mail Server (STMP) smtp.mail.me.com. Check "Use only this server"
Then go to Advanced with this Account (mine is ICloud). Enable this account and Include when automatically checking....should both be checked
Port: mine was 993 and "Use SSL" is checked.
Authentication: Password. Check in "use IDLE Command if server supports it.
I don't know why this was suddenly changed a few months back. Now that I have upgraded to ICloud, it was all a bit confused. I had a mobile me account and gmail. Now I have gmail and Icloud.
Hope this works for you. If it doesn't make sense, let me know. I will TRY to help.

Note - there setting are specific to your e-mail service - each user needs to get the appropriate settings from their e-mail service - many are different and your settings may not work with a different e-mail vendor

Thanks for the feedback--this helped me send it from my email account. However, it did not help me send it from within iPhoto. I have Lion and this seems to be a feature of iPhoto 11, but it is not working for me to send from within iPhoto. I keep getting a message saying my email server and password do not match. If anyone knows how to fix that I'd love to hear it.

I am struggling with the same issue.......I've checked w/ my email service, and have confirmed that my settings are all correct.......
It would be really great if APPLE could see to this problem, as it renders this feature useless.....
Has anyone else had luck?
BTW, i remain on Snow Leopard, didn't want to mess up a good thing there.......

also......FYI.....I have tried, in Preferences, to say "send photos via iPhoto", switched it to via Mail...I have the correct outgoing server info, the correct port, etc....... I contacted my email provider, and could not see any issue.... No matter what I try, it continues to say that it 'can't connect to the server"....... but my regular email works just fine......
