Does anyone here know how to enable/disable the auto-resize feature when sending images in Windows XP.

When you right click an image or group of images and go Send To --> Mail Recipient; you are usually prompted with a resize box which will automagically prep photos to an e-mail suitable size.

I've hunted around a bit on Google etc and haven't found anything appropriate, so if anyone know how to enable or disable this feature I'd be very interested as I would like to enable it on a machine.

Don't know about the Send-to - Mail thing but there is a feature in Win XP Powertoys that resizes images:

Image Resizer
This PowerToy enables you to resize one or many image files. When resizing you can choose from one of four standard sizes or choose a size that you specify. You can also choose to resize the original image or create a new one. Right click any image(s) and select 'Resize Pictures' in the context menu.

Cheers Jim... that is the procedure I'm talking about.

However I have a machine, WXP Home, which bypasses the resize stage, it just attaches the pictures (in their current format) without displaying the resize dialogue.

I need to work out how to get the machine to start displaying the dialogue again.

It seems to be a common problem but this (http://www.tech-forums.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3558) is all I can find on it.
