Cannot attach a pic to a pm...why?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm confused.


I generally reduce pictures to the size : Web Documents (Large). This size uploads no problem when I post a pic with a thread and is the size I always use. Compressing pictures to thumbnail size works too.

I've tried both of these but when I try to attach them to a pm it's not allowing me.

I compressed the pics to web size (thumbnail), then I tried reducing further to e-mail size which is only 12.9KB and still no luck.......is there something I'm missing or doing wrong?

The filetype you are attempting to upload is not allowed

This is what is coming up when I attempt to attach a pic to the pm.

Can anyone help please?


One more thing ... the file name is followed by the letters JPG in upper case....does this make a difference and if so how do I make them lower case?
