Receipt of .JPEG files

Why are all of the JPEG files I receive from cell phones very large, so that I cannot get a decipherable picture?

Outlook Express for XP

    They're large when the sender takes pictures at higher resolutions. That shouldn't have anything to do with whether they are decipherable or not, although your e-mail server might limit sizes of e-mail items and not allow you to receive them if they're too large. -- Tom

    Are you sure the image file format is .JPEG ? What program are you trying to view the image with? Have you tried to view with another program and get same results? If you still have files you cannot view because it may be a partial file check to see if there are limits on e-mail size like Tom mentioned. Our work e-mail has a size limit that includes the attachments. I am not sure in HOTMAIL or YAHOO have size limits, but you could have the sender try and send to another account and see if problem still exists. Maybe sender went over their allotted data limits and the problem is at their end.
