viewing picture attachments

Carl S. Moore

Is there a way to "autoview" picture attachments in an email
message? In Outlook Express, when you open an email, it
shows any jpg attachments right in the email, but in Outlook
you have to open them as they just show up as icons. Is there
someway to make Outlook similar to OE in this regard?

Thanks, Carl

Thanks for the info. One more question, in OE, the address names
do "autocomplete" when typing in. Outlook doesn't seem to do this.
Is it some setup I need to change?

(FYI, the reason I'm switching to Outlook is because OE doesn't
seem to like to work over network, and I want access from multiple
PC's on the network. Outlook works but OE doesn't even when you
mount network disk).

What version of Outlook are you using? Outlook 2003 will re-use (and
auto-fill) the addresses of folks you previously have emailed from a cache
it builds dynamically. If an earlier version,
Outlook doesn't do auto-complete. It has a feature called auto-resolution.
If you enter part of a name or a nickname then tab out of the field (or hit
Alt-K [Check Names]), Outlook will attempt to resolve the name against your
address book. If it can't it'll red underline it and you can right click on
the name to manually resolve it. Outlook will save the resolution for future
use.

It is Outlook 2000. Oh well.... seems like it is based a lot
on OE (or vice versa), so I would have expected it would have
had the features.

Actually the products are completely different, Outlook Express being a part
of Internet Explorer and Outlook being a program designed for Office. All
they share is a couple of .dlls for rendering HTML in Outlook - otherwise,
they are completely different programs meant for completely different
audiences.

Hmm..... Much of the internet mail functions of it
(ie, not exchange) look identical.

The autocompletion feature came in Outlook 2002. Outlook 2000 in Internet
Mail Only mode was meant to resemble Outlook Express (or vice versa, I'm not
sure which).

Outlook doesn't handle network use well either, unless you use Exchange
server or a sharing utility.
