Can't see photo's directly in email using Outlook

Heyya...

Ok...I just switched from OE6 to Outlook 2003 (prof.).  I imported all of my settings and emails.

When I was using OE and somebody sent me an e-mail with photos in it, the photos would show up directly in my email so I wouldn't have to click on every attachment just to view one photo at a time.

Now, when I open Outlook to view those very same emails with pics, I just get the attachments but the pic's are not in the body of the email message.  Does anybody know how I can change this setting so that when my friends send me pics, I don't have to open up each attachment one by one? Any info is greatly appreciated. :-).

Outlook shows pictures in the emails only for HTML emails and Rich text. Other than that you have to view only using third party applications

also make sure the image src in HTML emails are set as full path and not relative path.

Thank you sunray. :-)

Ryancys, I don't understand what you are telling me...lol.  Can you put it in "not so computer literate terms". :-)  How do I set it to full path and not relative path?  Thanks for your help.

I mean since your email body is in HTML format, your images should be linked to a website's image (full path), but not a relative path, like:

Use:

<img src="http://www.yourdomain.com/logo.gif">

instead of:

<img src="logo.gif">

otherwise you may not able to view your images directly from your email..
