We can't open or save as a jpeg file in Outlook 2003.
We get an "Operation Failed" error.

Have tried to re-install office, same problem.

Greetings, Tonie16 !

The extension may be blocked. You may need to add the JPG extension to the Level1Remove or Level2Remove key to allow the attachment.

Best wishes!
