What is the message are you getting?

Have you associated an image-viewing file with jpg extension (Control Panel -> Default programs)?

May be the jpg file association is not working. Detattach the jpg files from the email and save it to some place. Double click the jpg file and select microsoft paint. It will be associated to microsoft paint and now onwards, jpg files will open from within email attachment.

I'm assuming you have a web browser like firefox or IE. Drag the .jpg file from the explorer window (after detaching) to the address bar of your web browser. The web browser will display your .jpg file. Depending on your mail program, you can drag from there as well.

Thanks.  I went to control panel and associated it with Windows Photo and it works just fine.
