Resize received email pictures for forwarding
I know pictures can be resized for sending in email, but is there any way to resize pictures received in email for copying or forwarding?

Not without losing image quality.
Resampling images is easy (many freeware image viewers/editors will do it), but the long and the short of it is that the program doing the resampling is adding pixels that don't exist; so the larger the image is resampled, the worse it will look.

Thanks for your reply. Hope my question wasn't misleading; I meant to ask about reducing the GREAT BIG photos which come in on emails to a reasonable size for copying or forwarding or downloading. Did you mean that reducing the size adds pixels?

Sorry, yes of course, you can resize images received but not in Outlook Express (maybe another mail client).

You'll need to save to your HardDrive and resize the image there.
Then forward the original mail, but before sending, remove the old attachment and attach the new resized image.
And no, images reduced in size don't have pixels added.
