I need to be able to send illustrations in color to literary agents. These must be in the body of the email, not in attachments. Will Outlook express be capable of doing that.
There is no Outlook Express for Windows 7, only Outlook which is not free.
Why not put the illustrations on a webpage and send the link?
There is a modified version available here : http://rafailb.tk/index.php?itemid=27
that is tasted and works on windows 7 and windows 8.
