Blog images not showing in Sharepoint email alerts


  • I have been using Live Writer to blog on our corporate MOSS 2007 site blogs. The blogs have been configured to sen instant/daily blog alerts to all subscribers. 

    The images that I insert into my blog using Live Writer do not appear in the email alerts received by the subscribers (on Outlook 2007). However, they appear perfectly on the blog site.

    Next, I tried using MS Word to create a blog post with images and published it on the MOSS site. This time the blog alert (email) was showing the images. 

    I think Windows Live Writer is not uploading the inserted images to a valid folder on MOSS. Here's the location it is using to store the images:


    I checked but this folder structure does not exist on the MOSS site. Whereas, MS Word uploads the images to the following valid location.


    There should be a way in Windows Live Writer to configure the location (folder) where the images should be uploaded.
