    Sendin photos with Windows 10

    Whenever I send a photo from my computer, with Microsoft's Live mail, it takes forever. It takes so long just to send a single photo That I no longer send any. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong or not doing! No one I know has this problem but I can't figure it out. Help anyone! I would like to get this fixed because I have photos I would like to send now & then to GTT & friends.

    Have you tried using another email program? Or tried sending them with your MS Live account on a different computer?

    My first thought is, how fast is your upload speed? And how big are the pictures you are sending? You can check your up/download speeds at a place like Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test, and right click on the image file and look at properties to see how big it is. If your upload speed is really slow and the files are really big, that could be part of the problem.

    A second factor may be that time is being spent on the server side to do things like virus checking before it shows up as an attachment.

    I just did a test with my Live email account (which I don't use that often) uploading a 3mb picture which I think is equivalent to a 14 megapixel picture. It "attached as a copy" within 45 seconds and I was able to send it to another email account I have. Opened up the other email and the picture was there in less than a minute.

    My download and upload speeds are not that fast, but are very reliable (Frontier Communications SUCKS) and my ISP gets the job done for most things I want to do. You may want to check your ISP speeds.

    Download Speed: 1619 kbps (202.4 KB/sec transfer rate) or 1.6Mbps
    Upload Speed: 588 kbps (73.5 KB/sec transfer rate) or 0.59Mbps


    I do not watch Hulu, Netflix, or any other long streaming movies or videos, but do watch Youtube some and have no problems at my speeds. Did I say Frontier Communications SUCKS? Well, they do.

    Good to have some solid numbers to compare against. And that brings up another question. To some people, 45 seconds seems like a long time when they are doing this sort of thing, it is very subjective. I wonder how long Maddog's "forever" is in seconds...

    This.


    For me, a 3MB file should upload in about 10-15 seconds, especially considering I can send them from my phone in that time or less. But, I also have my capabilities "at a certain level" to facilitate that.

    One additional test that hasn't been mentioned, but may be worth while, would be to open up a Gmail account (unless you have one already) and perform the exact same test using it. Same photo file, no other programs running, and send it over to your MS account. See how long the file upload portion takes using Google's services and see if any portion of the time that it takes has to do with MS or not.

    Another thing to take away from wsafley's comment about virus checking is this: You should be able to tell when the upload itself actually completes if there's a pop-up window or something that goes away versus waiting until it refreshes into the message as an attachment. You have zero control over how long the refresh portion takes while your Internet services are what impact the upload portion.
