Cannot open any JPG picture attachment in emails. I have tried making Windows viewer and Microsoft Picture Manager the default program to no avail. I have to manually save each picture to a folder on my computer in order to open them. Has anyone had this problem any ideas? Using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP. Thanks!

Software/Hardware used:
Outlook 2003, Windows XP

    It sounds like a setting in your Outlook - I have no issues on my XP computer running Outlook 2003. You can configure the Automatic Picture Download Settings feature in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 to block or unblock pictures or other content that is contained in HTML e-mail messages. By default, Outlook 2003 blocks the automatic download of pictures and other content from the Internet in HTML messages.

    The automatic picture downloads in the email body work fine. I am referring to the pictures attached to an email. For example I can open PDF, Word, and Excel attachments just fine, just not Jpg. I'm thinking it could be a setting in Windows XP itself, although like I mentioned above I have tried setting the default program to open pictures in Windows settings already but it doesn't seem to change anything in Outlook. Thanks
