    nothing should happen when you are composing the message. However, if you added a hyperlink to the image in your message correctly, it will show up on the receiver end of your e-mail. just send an email like this to yourself and see that it works.

    to add a link to an image, select the image in the mail composition window and go to mail menu->edit->link->add.

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I tried what you said but it did work. Here is what I am doing. I am dragging the image into the text space in mail. After that I am clicking on it, going to edit,link, add,pasting the address, clicking ok. that should do it right?

    yes, that's it. as i said you won't actually see any difference when you do this in the message composition window but the link will be added. when you send the message, the e-mail receiver will be able to click on the image and go to the linked address.

    It works for me.

    I know that it is being added but it is not working. I mean it is not being transmitted. Any suggestions?

    hmm, strange. as i said it works for me. Just tried it out to make sure. maybe something is getting messed up during the delivery. Open the sent message in the sent mailbox. does the hyperlink work there?

    BTW, what version of Mail are you using? Mine is 3.3. I've done this before and it also worked in 3.1 and 3.2

    Hi VK: I am working with version 3.3 now. Was working with version 3.2 yesterday. But it still not working in the sent or in the received. You know how it is a simple thing gets really complicated. Any suggestion? Thanks for your time.

    sorry, I don't know why this doesn't work for you. you seem to be doing it correctly so it should just work.

    some things to try (none might help).

    1. try this from a different user account.
    2. reinstall Mail from optional installs on the leopard DVD.
    3. reinstall Safari update.

    after doing 2 or 3 you'll have to reinstall 10.5.3 combo update too to bring your system up to date.

    Hi VK. Finally I figured it out. The link function don't work with pdf files. I changed the extension to jpeg and it work perfectly. Just for you to know. Thanks again for you time and thoughts.


    Peace.
