Picture attachments blocked in OWA 2000

I have a user who will be working from home.  The user is getting pictures sent as attachments.  The attachments show up in Outlook 2003 client but we are using MS Exchange 2000 server.  In the outlook client the pictures are viewable and able to be saved.  The user is using OWA from home and the attachments get blocked.  This is the error message that shows with that picture attachment:

Attachments may contain viruses that are harmful to your computer.  Attachments may not display correctly.

User gets all other attachments from OWA with no problem but the user needs the picture attachments.

OWA 2000 has no attachment blocking feature.  You may need to check Internet Explorer security settings instead

I had a feeling that could be it considering the user can get documents and spreadsheets & pdf's but not pictures.  What security settings do you suggest?  I've looked at them and didn't see anything that would make a difference since she was downloading documents and etc.

What version of IE are we dealing with here?  Have you tried with Firefox to see if jpg will show?

The user is using IE ver 7.  Firefox isn't an option for this user.  She will not change over to another browser.

Just tried using OWA with firefox.  I have it on my workstation and the problem still persist; picture attachments are blocked.

So, the problem is not browser since both IE and Firefox exhibited the same behavior.  Do you have any software firewall that could block asp script or jpg?
