First off - kudos to our webmeister for getting us back on the tracks! When attempting to use the mail feature in Picasa, it will not give me a choice to use other than its built-in Gmail although there's a window ostensibly offering a choice of other mail clients but it's grayed out. I am thus forced to drag the photo from the Picasa album to the Win7 desktop which will not allow access to the file reduction feature. That creates a hefty package for dial-up. I would appreciate any advice.
