Outlook XP not displaying gifs

Im using Outlook 2002, and for some reason, I am receiving some blank emails, which should instead contain either embedded gifs or jpegs.

THe graphic files do not even show as attachments, but I know for certain they are there and where I use my older version of outlook to collect the same mail on another PC, the images are displayed.

How can I get outlook to display these files automatically, whether they are embedded gifs or sent as an attachment?

The size of the email also indicates that it is not a blank email.

Thx

I don't believe inline display will be an option.  It isn't in OL2k.
Do you have an Exchange Server or some other filter that is stripping it before being downloaded in 2002?

nope its just my home pc.

Thats just stupid. I cant believe that a basic email client like outlook express can display embedded or attached jpgs and a full version outlook program cant.  Thats just stupidity to have good features missed out on the full version.

Because you have Word checked as your editor.  Look in Tools-Options and find the place to uncheck it.  I don't even know if it can be unchecked in 2002.
As far as in-line viewing goes, that is a home type thing and is why it is in OE.  In business it is assumed it won't be needed, therefore it is left out of Outlook.

Open up one of the emails that should contain the embedded image, and check the format of the email.  Does it say Plain Text, Rich Text Format (RTF), or HTML at the top of the message?

Sorry for the delay.  It says HTML.

Im getting a little irritated being unable to view the images inline.  Having to view them by clicking on them one by one can be a painstaking task.

Any more suggestions?

Greetings,

Do you get any type of message at the top of the email about OE has removed a potentially unsafe attachment?

Hi mtgenius, this question was closed 2 years ago and it was about Outlook 2002, not Outlook Express.
