Greetings, sgarvey !

What happens which you try to view the attachment?

You need to allow JPG extension in the Level1Remove registry key.

Hi, War1,
You can only view attachments (.jpg) after saving them first.  This is the only workstation that forces .jpg attachments to be saved in Outlook 2003.  Others have no problems.  She is the webmaster and needs to open these attachments without having to save them first.  I will adjust the registry and see if that works.  Will llet you know.  thanks, Sheila

Hi, War1,
Made the registry change, but still no luck.  Forced to save file.  I also used the Value name:  RemoveWarning file types and added .jpg. to the value data.  Still no luck -- must save.  Any other ideas?  Sheila

Hi, War1,
Found the solution by doing Level2Remove.  The .jpg extension is a Level2 security and doesn't need to be saved.  If anyone else has this problem just create a new string value named Level2Remove anf for the value enter.jpg.  It worked.  Sheila
