Outlook 2002 doesnot display attachments in messages

Dear all,

I use Outlook 2002. if I get picture attachments, those are not displayed in the body, rather they are just shown as attachments. So if I have 5 attachemnts, I have to open each attachment one by one and view them seperately.. Is tehre a way so that these pictures are displayed in my outlook itself

Really depends on how it got to you. There are many formats for embedding images in pages, html and rich text just being most common.  And even the html can be in various flavors.
Normally, since images can cause buffer overruns etc, they are made to be saved and not viewed directly, however this is changed behaviour since they originally did display naturally. Now-a-days if you want to display a fully graphical page, direct them to a website. or attach a pdf...
hope that helps.

Hello sunjiiv,

Instead of attaching images, just copy paste them into the message. That way they will open inline.
Of course, you cant use text format for sending inline images.

hi sunny,
R u talking about copying and pasting after taking a screenshot? That has always worked for me. But I cannot ask people who send me the attachments to do the same.. Is there any other way to accomplish the objective?

hi sunny,

the link that you sent me was the same link I was checking out yesterday.. I wil check it out later once more as yesterday I wasnt able 2 figure out how 2 put the coding in

Unfortunately no ... If a file is attached, it is received as attachment. If a file is placed inline, it can be viewed inline.

Quoting from
http://www.slipstick.com/mail1/inline.asp

By design, Outlook only shows images "inline" (in the message body) when the message is sent using HTML with embedded images or RTF formatting with OLE embedded images. Images in plain text mail items are listed as attachments (that you can open or save). Attachments to plain text messages are not displayed in the message body, as they are in Outlook Express.

Probably it was a different link. This link does not have code ... it has links to two external paid tools that help preview and manage image attachments.

why not just create a Rich text message and insert a picture rather than an attachment, that will be displayed inline..
