Outlook Express 6.0 SP1 on Windows XP SP1 does not in the default configuration automatically open a jpg attachment in the preview pane period!. I just checked again. I will say it again, in the default configuration, attachments will not be opened by Outlook Express or Outlook. If this is happening on your computers, you or some one must have either reconfigured them from default, or configured a policy to do this. Now, if a jpg is imbedded in the body of the e-mail, that will show in the preview pane.

I want to be able to see this in Outlook 2003 as well. I have to click on each image individually. _____ From: Donavon Yelton [mailto:dyelton@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, December 07, 2004 4:00 PM To: [ExchangeList] Subject: [exchangelist] RE: Outlook image display http://www.MSExchange.org/ Depends how the message is sent. If they send a text e-mail to you with a picture, it will be an attachment. If they paste it into the body in an HTML message then it will show in the body of the message.
