I use Pegasus mail.  The only thing I can think of is the timeout.  Pegasus has a setting for this:

Click on Tools, Internet Options, then click on the "Sending (SMTP)" tab.  With the configuration in the list (hosts) selected, usually the top one, click the Edit button.  Change the "Timeout" from 30 to 60 seconds.

Don't know if it'll work but it's the only thing I can think of.

Regards,
Mike

Fred -

Funny that in responding to me you should mention hot spots.  As you know they are - for me - La spécialité de la maison.  Ok - not so much on forehead, but the tip of the nose, flower petals, bright colorful leaves, dinner jackets, and butterflies, to name just a few guest appearances.  And, yes, the latest version of vanish is great for removing them with grat ease.  Only problem now is that people see these prints and they don't believe that their mine.

Hello Mike

Many thanks for suggestion.

I increased  the time out to 120 seconds did not appear to make any difference. except % sent now increment 1 at a time instead of big jumps.

I have spent most of today experimenting including switching of Avast antivirus and then back on.

I have got both email progs to send attachments, (don't know how) but if I put an alternative address in the 'copy to' that one fails, I have two addresses one hosted by the ISP other one with 1&1 which is forwarded to the ISP address.

I am now giving up for today and retiring to an easy chair in darkened room.

Thanks again

Jeff

Here is my dirty little secret.  When you move the cursor around in the image editor, you get a nice readout in the lower right, of the RGB value.  Over the 15 or so years that I have been using Qimage, I have developed a sense of what I expect those values to be for certain subjects – especially flesh tones – based on analyzing the values from earlier prints that I found to be really satisfactory.  For example, for average Caucasian flesh tone, for portraits – I have found that 240, 200, 180 is a wonderful value for the center of the forehead. (this may be a carryover from something similar I used to do in the darkroom).

In accordance with keeping busy in a positive way during the virus policies, and at the same time showing some stuff you can do in QU that is not obvious or documented; just fun stuff. Stuff like what Mel explained above.

Set the scene!! Quite oftenI make DVDs for the neighbors. Recently, I was handed a bunch of Dolly Parton Mp3s and a few MP4s, and asked to make a disk. That's easy. The hard part is a round label to paste on to the DVD.  Of course, you will need a pack of DVD lable paper.
So See  screen snap 039. That is what I made.

Step 1, add a 4.75 x 4.75 template to the queue. (In custom size, enter 4.74 x 4.75) then click on the template thumbnail.

Step 2 Go into Page Editor and add Floating text, sizing and placing it where you wish. See screen snap 040

Step 3 Select a thumbnail that you wish for the mood of the DVD and click the + sign. That image now resides in the queue under the text.

Step 4 Open the Image editor and add a cutout that says CD or DVD. You will get an oval shape depending on the shape of the image.
Close and save filter.

Step 5 Open the page editor. see screen snap 041. It is an area at the upper right  corner where you can slide the image to where the important part is in the box. Now look at the left side. There is your round print. You now can adjust the position of the text, or size of the text, and make the important parts of your creation fit inside the circle.
It sounds like a lot, but really, fun, creative and easy after you do one.

(and then you can dare anyone to say, "Dolly Partons biggest hits" 3 times fast and not laugh.)

Have fun,
Fred

But the real secret here is how you turned that dark heron into a white one.

I know you are being subtle and trying to tell me I am For The Birds, but that happens to be a great white Egret.
And we also have white Herons here in Florida just to keep, us confused.
I realize that you have no (r)egrets where you live.

Unfortunately, my ornithological knowledge is very limited, to only one type of bird, the Baltimore Oriole i.e. Eddie Murray, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson etc. etc. and even at that I have to go back in time to reference those birds in their prime

and the most notable, Jim Palmer.
Aah, baseball, my lifelong addiction. New York Giants, and The NY Yankees. I lived 6 blocks from the Yankee Stadium, and Joe Dimaggio's mother lived in an apartment in a building across the street. Our neighborhood had never seen a Caddy Convertible until Joe visited him mother during the season.
But my real love was the Giants...we hated the Dodgers... Pewee Reese, Pete Rieser, Dolf Camilli, Cookie Lavagetto, etc.
Later on, on off days, I would get to the Polo Grounds at noon, (game was 2:30) just to see Willie Mays do batting practice, and throwing from the outfield.

I must apologize to all for getting carried away on a topic not germane to the forum.
Fred

OK – I promise this will be my last off topic post as I’m sure Mike doesn’t want us to fill this forum with baseball talk, but it is a passion of mine as well, the game itself even more than my love of any one team.

About 30 years ago I was at a sports card event with my (then teenage) son.  And there sitting at a table together, signing autographs (for a fee of course) were Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca. To meet and talk to them really was a thrill. October 3 1951, one of the great days in baseball history, and even in the small sleepy Maryland town where I grew up, it was all anyone could talk about.  On that same day, in St. Paull Minnesota, a baby was born – his name – Dave Winfield.

I was at Memorial Stadium when Cal Jr. hit is final home run.  I still remember it was to the lower bleachers behind left field.  Smiley
