Because it was designed to be a low-cost email appliance, MailBug does not use a graphic screen, and hence is not able to display photos or images. So any photos that are attached or embedded in an email that is sent to a MailBug address are removed before being sent to the MailBug device.
So MailBug cannot display photo attachments. However there is a solution for some users in the form of digital picture frames that can receive and display photos.
Digital Picture Frames
While MailBug itself cannot display photos, by adding a digital picture frame and linking it to your MailBug account, you can easily and automatically view photo attachments emailed to your MailBug account. With the advent of wifi/cloud-connected digital picture frames, this is now possible without requiring a computer. Once the picture frame is set up, photos sent as email attachments to your MailBug can be automatically displayed on the picture frame. Of course you can optionally select which email senders can send you photos that will get displayed.
Digital picture frames can store tens of thousands of photos, and are available with a variety of slide show options. Via the use of a free web portal, the photos can be managed remotely from any internet connected computer. Pictures can be either received via email sent to your MailBug, or uploaded directly to the picture frame via the online web portal by a trusted friend or family member that you (or the MailBug user) allow to have that access.
Using the digital photo frame will require access to a wifi network and an electrical outlet. However, that is common in many homes today.
Your MailBug email service has many flexible options that let you determine how your email can be filtered, and selecting who can send you photos is easily done. Our Customer Support team can show you how, or we can set it up for you.
