Please always include version information, clear and complete steps to
reproduce, and what actually happens. Also, which composer format?

Thanks,
andre

Hi,

if you want to insert a gif within the text, then ensure that the selection box on the left side of the editor window does show "HTML" and not "Plain Text".
Attaching a gif should work whatever is selected.

Regards,
Ralf

Hello Mario

1. Ensure you are composing the message in HTML
2. On the menu named "Insert", select the option "Image..."
3. Choose the image of your choice (gif, jpeg, png...)

The result will be embedded in the email, like this:





Evolution icon by GNOME Project, under license http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/
and available at https://github.com/gnome-design-team/gnome-icons/ (I just converted it from png to gif)


Best regards



PS: Use of html email on this list is generally discouraged, but I think this is one of those cases where it actually provides additional value.

Hi,

thanks for your help.

Yes, that is how i do. It works for .jpeg, it does not for a .gif.
Indeed, I get a strange error msg:

>>
Could not save to autosave file “.evolution-composer.autosave-R43HU0”.
Error saving to autosave because “The connection is closed”.
<<

Any idea?
thanks cheers
mario

Yes: "109.0 MB, and 272 frames." Good luck. :)

Hi,

the issue unlike is Evolution. It should be possible to insert or
attache an   {animated,} image   of whatever size.

A while ago I met the kids of a friend when being out for landscape
shots with a "low resolution" 24.2 megapixels amateur camera. I've taken
a snapshot of her kids and wanted to send it to her email address at
work. It was "just" a 19.4 M JPEG, but the server rejected the image,
because it was to large. I was able to sent it to her private gmx
account. Before doing this, I was able to send a little animation, a
580.3 K gif I've drawn, to my chiefess, to the same server as the server
of my friend.

I'm doing one or the other professional artwork, too, but already
sending most of my smaller sized amateur artwork by email fails very
often.

IMO it's important to point out that inserting, attaching an image
shouldn't fail. Sending large images usually fails, because email
servers usually limit the size of emails they will accept.

It's a different kettle of fish.

Regards,
Ralf

PS:

Am I mistake? Is it already impossible to insert or attach 109.0 MB?
If so why? Is the size per se limited via RFC?

Googling for RFC I found a limit of 50 MB. But IIUC there are "ifs" and
"buts".

I would expect it to be possible to ATTACH a 109MB document - in fact
I'm pretty sure I've done it.

I would not expect it to work, in any mail client anywhere, to INSERT a
109MB image/document.  The body of an e-mail is a Document-Object-Model
kind of thing, and I just wouldn't expect any message edit to survive
such a traumatic event.

Whether even the former is wise is another question [the answer to
which is "no" - if only because the serialization of an e-mail
attachment bloats the payload by ~20%, so you are talking about 130MB
to send - and then store - 109MB].

Much less the ISP enforced limits on the maximum size of both an email and
an attachment.  I can't remember the last time I sent email or email with
attachment that was larger than 10MB as most of the services I operate through
have a 10MB total size limit.

One has to wonder if all the cloud file services (dropbox, box, onecloud, google
drive, etc) came about because of ever shrinking limits on the total size of an
email message.

Mike

Gmail is I believe the most popular email service in the world and had
a limit of 25MB last time I looked. Certainly not 100MB.

I don't believe they have shrunk. Limits used to be a lot smaller than
they are now. However the limit on the size of the message being sent
is not a limit on the total number of bytes being delivered. I think
we've all seen examples of some low-level official sending off a 20MB
attachment to all 3500 company employees when they could have achieved
the same result by just sending a link.

Office365 is ~50MB;  so, still not 100MB.

I don't believe the limits have gotten lower.

It is simply that file-
sharing is a better answer in almost all use-cases.  One operational
problem with attachment sending is the untethered duplication.  The
target of a link [of any kind] can be updated, resulting in everyone
with the link have access to an updated document vs. the person who
"has the file" saved *somewhere* and continues to use it.

Aside - with evolution you can attach documents to appointments and
tasks.  So if you can share the CalDAV collection [calendar / to-do
list] you get an excellent read-mostly document sharing solution.
