I had a look at that and it was quite scary, and had a lot of stuff that I
didn't understand and didn't think I want to know!
I just wanted to e-mail a picture from Picasa to my daughter to ask her to
tell me who was in it, but it seems that it would be easier just to run
Pegasus separately, look for the file on disk and send it as an e-mail
attachment. That doesn't seem to need Microsoft Exchange (whatever that may
be) that asks me to create profiles and all sorts of things -- by the time
I've found out what that is and how to do it I could have sent 20 pictures by
ordinary e-mail attachment.
Thanks for the help, but I think I'll stick to the ordinary way, rather than a
short cut that takes much longer!
