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!!!

Thats not working either....And this user is set in his ways, and has a procedure for every computer related task, and he didnt want to learn it yet.....

It was already installed as well.....

Probably need to just uninstall the Picture and fax viewer control to fix both if I had to guess.....

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!!!
