Allow ".jpeg" attachments

The software is a bit fussy. It accepts "jpg" but not "jpeg". Is that an easy fix?

Try saving it to your hard drive with the shorter extension. It should upload.

.jpeg was introduced on Mac, but early Windows was limited to 3-letter extensions. The Win and Mac loyalists showed their usual level of goodwill and soldiered on with the different names, but the formats are indistingusihable.

Yes, and that's what I did to get around the problem. But in this day and age, it really shouldn't be necessary.

But AVSIG isn't living in this day and age. The version of UBB we are using was around 8 years ago, and probably longer. :)

It's much easier to change the name than it is to change the system.

True, but it makes the 'sig less friendly to the not so technically adept. If it's just a configuration setting somewhere, it might be an easy fix.
