copying an image

Hello Richmond,
That is what really threw me.  Outlook Express accepts copy/paste from other 
programs, notably ACDC, a photo organizer software that I use all the time.

I haven't really tried it with too many other programs.  The bottom line is 
that Word accepts from LC and Outlook Express does not.  Weird to me.

One day (probably long after I'm dead) computer software will come out of 
the dark ages and into the light.
