It isn't possible to add attachments to a message sent to a HubPages member. This is a major omission?
I ask for photos on one of my hubs and provide a separate email for them to send it to. Handling attachments is a big security risk which HP probably doesn't want to take.
Couldn't a photo just be attached so that it displays and isn't clickable (in case it's a virus EXE file masquerading as a JPG?)
But if you reply to the email that the member sends then they have your email to send the attachment to so doesn't that solve the problem?
Yes, but you have to go to the trouble of explaining to every new reader that they need to send an email so that you can reply to them so that they see your email and can then reply with a photo attached, which is all really convoluted. The alternative would be to post our email addresses in our profiles.
What we do is bound by the ToS and they have our SS#. Random readers... who knows. I am sure it could be done but I doubt it is worth the trouble when we can just use email.

I was just getting ready to send a hub in an email from the email option that used to be in the Share section. I couldn't find it.. has it been gone long? Or am I missing something?

It would be delightful if there was an easier way to contact some of the Hubbers. I have not done that often, since transferring from Squidoo, however - each time I wished to, I had to remember how to do it. When I am on my profile page, and someone shows up who I am following, the message in blue...

Does anyone know where I can send an email or post a suggestion for the hubpages?
