JSI Tip 8739. When you send an image by e-mail from Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer in Windows XP, you are NOT prompted to keep the original image size, or make the image smaller?

When you attempt to perform the subject action, the Send Pictures via E-Mail wizard does NOT start, and you are NOT prompted to keep the original image size, or make the image smaller.

This behavior will occur of the Sendmail.dll file is corrupted and or the PerceivedType Value Name is NOT set to image.

To resolve this problem, I have scripted FixSPvE.bat, to replace the Sendmail.dll file from %SystemRoot%\System32\DLLCache, and to set the PerceivedType Value Name to image for the .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .tif and .tiff extensions.

FixSPvE.bat contains:

@echo off
Copy /Y %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE\sendmail.dll %SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\sendmail.dll
REG ADD "HKCR\.bmp" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
REG ADD "HKCR\.gif" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
REG ADD "HKCR\.jpg" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
REG ADD "HKCR\.jpeg" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
REG ADD "HKCR\.tif" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
REG ADD "HKCR\.tiff" /V PerceivedType /T REG_SZ /D "image" /F
NOTE: See How to use the Image toolbar and Automatic Image Resizing feature in Internet Explorer 6.
