From AOL's official site:

Can AOL Members accept e-mail attachments that are MIME encoded?
Yes. The AOL e-mail software is MIME compliant. As long as correspondents sending e-mail attachments to AOL also have e-mail software that is MIME compliant (and most e-mail software is), AOL Members and folks on the Internet can swap files.

Occasionally, AOL Members might need to decode a MIME file. If an e-mail file attachment is received and the file name ends in .mme, a MIME decoder will do the trick. If the Internet correspondent does not have MIME compliant e-mail software, a MIME decoder will definitely be needed. AOL Members can find more information on this topic on AOL at Keyword: Mime.

Thanks for all the info I will see if I can make my email use the uuencode - I'm using Mail in OSX.2. The problem seems to be intermittent. I have sent photos successfully using Mail, but today for some reason, it wouldn't work.

She sent me a picture today and I notice it was in .tif format - maybe I'll try that.

Would it make any difference whether I use Photoshop or some other graphics program to create the image file?? I've been switching between Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

The world won't end if the problems persists, but I like to know how things work.

Take care, Margaret
