Snipping tool not emailing images in Outlook

Linked Image Cannot Be Displayed
I had a user who could not send images via Snipping Tool in Outlook 2010.  Copy and paste worked but not Send To > Email Recipient.

Looking at the source of the email Outlook was sending the local path of the image and not the image.  There is a setting in the registry that fixes this.  The path below will differ depending on the version of Office you have.  12.0 being Office 2007, 14.0 being Office 2010, and 15.0 being Office 2013.

Open Regedit and browse to the following key...

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Mail
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value name; Send Pictures With Document
Value: 0

Outlook 2010: “0x8004010F: Outlook data file cannot be accessed”

A client of mine was having the error 0x8004010F in Outlook 2010.  I repaired the PST and it fixed 30 or so errors but I was still having the issue. I ended up creating a new Outlook profile using the following link...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2289904

After creating the new profile I could not open or export the previous PST.  I realized she had checked the option Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP checked.  Once I unchecked that Outlook 2010 could open & export the previous PST.
