    I had a forum thread where I posted pictures of moon rising over a lake.
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=11290280&postcount=96
    Tried to email myself that at work/home via copy/paste from the web page directly into Apple Mail, got funky error. Tried sending to various email, same error message.
    (found via the connection doctor)

    I use Yahoo as my server, seems Yahoo is blocking the outgoing message because it has a link to my Google Picasa web hosting site??
    what abuse am I doing??
    I sent memo you Yahoo postmaster also.
    (I changed what info shown in RED to generic, not sure if a hacker could use that against me someday....)

    What did you try to send? If you just wanted the pictures you could have saved them and attached them in Mail like normal. Or you could have just e-mailed yourself the link. I'm confused about what you were trying to do based on the quoted text above.

    Thx for help, simply I'm being Lazy or efficient, depends on your viewpoint.

    Since I took the time to make a thread with info, I just copied and pasted from the thread into a email (Apple Mail).

    It looked exactly like the thread, comments and pictures.

    Then, when I hit send got error, I'm at work so can't take a scren grab of the error.

    Yes, I can just select the photos from Aperture, then mail them and add same text, but that's not as quick.

    My work (and many others) block picture web hosting services, so while the thread and text is visible the pictures come across as a red "X" like this:

    What happens if you attach the pics to the post, rather than links to the pics?

    When I just select>Copy>Paste, I've found it copies html links to the photos not the actual photos.

    Next, I added my google mail account to Apple Mail, which I rarely use.
    That worked with exact same email while the Yahoo did not.
    I first sent via google server, then fwd that same email via Yahoo server....

    Something on Yahoo side....

    For ref, here is pict of Mail prefs/etc,
