Outlook Express not automatically prompting to resize .jpg attachments

Hey guys....

This should be fairly easy, but I am up to my eyeballs in work related systems to fix, and dont feel like researching this one. So, I will rely on you fine folks.....

When a client rights clicks a .jpg, and uses the Send To>Mail Recipient, (Outlook Express 6) it is normally supposed to as "Make all my pictures smaller", or "Keep the original sizes". 1 system works fine, but the other skips this portion, and just attaches it.....I need to fix it so that it resizes the images prior to attaching....

I am sure its a simple .dll or control that's responsible for it, may even require a reload of OE.

Fire away!!!

Why don't the Resize Pictures dialog appear while sending picture to e-mail?:

XP Powertoy "Image Resizer" not working.....

Just FYI, it isnt even prompting for the dialog.....I unregistered the .dll on a test box to duplicate, and it still prompted, but took no action. Will let you know how it goes once I attempt on the problem box......

If you can think of anything else, please advise. Thanks!!!
Okie. Pls let us know the results. Hope it fixes the problem.
