    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.

      Is it different to us uploading photos which could be infected with malware, to our hubs?
      How do other sites cope with attachments of photos to e.g. forum posts?

    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.
