View Full Version : outlook attachments

12-12-2004, 01:50 PM

i use ms outlook at home and at work. At work whenever i receive an email that has jpeg attachments they appear in the box at the top and have to be opened to be viewed. Whenever i get mail with jpeg attachements at home they appear as part of the message. I have trawled the options and settings to allow my home to reflect the one at work but to no avail.

Any suggestions ?

This will vary depending on the version of Outlook.

Your version is...?

Outlook and Outlook Express are two entirely different applications.

The settings will also be entirely different.

In OE, Tools-Options-Security tick "Block images and other content in HTML email". Untick Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened..." and try that.

Sorry I cannot check it, as I do not use OE (or Outlook) for email, but it's easy to try and see.

sorry godfather that didn't work. got any other ideas ?

No, sorry.

I never use OE as there are much better email programs available in my opinion, so I cannot help further.

Hopefully another user will be able to help.

Probally just the difference between attaching and inserting an image into the email.

Email your self a couple of images twice.
First attach them
Second insert them

hi there rob.

i have tried this. At home i attach attachments rather than inserting attachements and they still come through as pictures on the bottom of the received email - however they are just attachements on the sent email !!!

I think this has something to do with the message format, being HTML, Plain Text or Rich Text. I believe that HTML formatted e-mails will display the picture, but Rich Text will display it as an attachment.
