Trying to post a picture from my Dropbox. Keep being told my attachment has failed security check and cannot be loaded and that I must contact admin.  Anyone have the address?? :)

News to me...  :[ ... and Fran's on holiday.

I'll see what I can find out.

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

@Catllar - can you give me the exact wording of the error message please, and tell me at what point it gets displayed (ie does the system try to upload the image first, or give the error message straight away)?

Oh, and if you save the image somewhere else on your computer and then try to upload it from there, do you have the same problem?

It is and must remain a total secret Im!

Acorn, it pretty much says what I said - I've tried from other sources and get the same thing. It has a decent go at loading - the hamster is running round in the generating wheel for  a long time before it gives up. I'll go have another try and report back with exact wording.

Right it says:" Your attachment has failed security checks and cannot be uploaded. Please consult forum administrator"

Oh and er I don't have it anywhere else on the pooter- Dropbox seem to be the only way I can transfer from Samsung phone to Mac book.

I don't know anything about Macbooks, but can't you transfer the image to your computer using Dropbox, and then save it (or copy it) to another place on the Macbook?

If you can do that and then you still have a problem uploading it here from another place than Dropbox, we will know that the issue is with the image (or possibly - but not probably - with you!!!)

That's what I was going to suggest.  It's my go-to way of transferring a photo from the phone to the laptop.

So emailing it to myself doesn't work. Off to try drop boxing it to somewhere else on the Mac.

Apparently that works, so.....?

Have you tried uploading a picture from the other place on your Mac?
