Windows Picture & Fax Viewer Saves Old Photos??


P

I recently sent and email from Outlook 2003 that contained 1 jpg image.

When I checked my sent items, and opened the attachment it launched
Windows Picture and Fax viewer and displayed the jpg. However if I
scrolled through Picture and Fax Viewer it displayed other jpg's that I
previously sent.

I search my hard drives for these images and they no longer exist.

My questions are:

1. How do i stop this?
2. Will my recipients see these other photos as well??

Thanks

1. How do i stop this?
===================================
You can't stop it but you can keep it cleaned up.

Any image you view on the internet or in
an e-mail message has to be downloaded
before you can see it on your screen...these
files are in your Temporary Internet Files folder.

You can find the folder at:
C:/Documents and Settings/User Name/
Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files

To show Hidden files...open any folder
and go to...Tools / Folder Options / View tab...
At, "Hidden Files and Folders" tick..."Show
Hidden Files and Folders" / Apply / OK.

Have a look at the following articles for
more instructions.

===================================
The recipient will only receive the image/s
you attach to the message.
