GMail Forwarding Problem

Emails received with a bunch of vertical lines – I think I was told before that it’s been shared or forwarded a bunch – but don’t recall details or if a fix was offered!

When I try to forward it – all the text letters become individual & verticle – pics show only as icons.

I’ve been able to copy & paste the text elsewhere and it reverts to horizontal lines – extra steps – but better than nothing!!

However, pics won’t let you copy or save!!

What am I missing!?




Here’s a link to the screenshot.…..y9959zzveU

Can’t figure out how to get the Google Photos pic to here, sorry!


Bon Chance!!

Hey Jim,

I can’t see the screenshot. It looks like you copied the link to the photo (right-click copy?) That doesn’t work with Google Photos since they are private to you. To share a photo from Google Photos, you need to use the Share button  WdD-u4mwej4wxZobxyn4AgD-38fiX4N4J6FIeFkP9cdTOVfb8nk0RT1kgrSemqEa7Yl9A5zlRzN6J5JNFuGZmzGMKkMWo3pBjuymniPgq0Ur8xkVVlKL_vDuDVWFzVKbwn3PTGm0 , then copy link and paste that link here.

I do believe you already understand the vertical line issue that comes from forwarding and re-forwarding. I’m not sure about the photos, but maybe when I see the screenshot I’ll have some ideas.
