You will need both the iWitness and MyHouse plug-ins for ActiveHome Pro.

Install your cameras in ActiveHome Pro.

Create a macro with the following steps:

In the far right pane, select 'Video Functions' from the Drop down list.

Drag a macro step in to the macro - 'Select Camera'.  Change the step to select your first camera.

Add a 3 second delay step to make sure the image from this camera is visible.

Now drag in the macro step - 'Email Images'.  Enter your email address, subject and message text.

Set this step to 'Email the most recent image'.

I would create a macro like this for each of your cameras.  Then assign timers to those macros for when you want the images emailed.

"Please take the time to read some of the other posts on the board!"
They will help, some have pics which speak volumes! ;) :D
There are many here that will be willing to help you (As CLacina has) but first do some reading so you understand the principles.Then try putting something together and if it doesn't work then post a very detailed message with what you've tried. Pics speak volumes so if you can include one it will help!
I did post a reponce to a very similar question look you'll find it it has pics! ;) :D ;D it was either in this section the Smartmacro section or the MYhouse Online  section!
If you don't have the MyHouse plugin you can still do what you want with a "FREE" third party addon X10Dispatcher
