Outlook refuses to show me the actual pictures attached to email.  Outlook Express shows them in the Preview Pane. There is ZERO about this on MS site. How?  Why?

This may not be the answer you want but...

Outlook's Preview Pane only shows images in HTML mail items and OLE embedded objects in RTF mail items. To view other attachments you either have to open them in their native application or use QuickView (especially helpful if you've got QuickView Plus from Inso).

I hope I am not fooling you (I use French progs).  
(1)Does your PC recognize the format you wish to see ?  If not configure it thru your Office.
(2) Are the names of the files complete ("pic" instead of "pic.jpg" for example)?
I had that problem some time ago, I check these two points and it went OK.
Hope for you too.
