    Hi all.

    I have been using Outlook Express but want to start using Outlook 2000. I have noticed that when I get an email in outlook 2000 that has a file(s) (pictures) attached they are not automatically displayed in the body of the message like they were in Outlook Express.

    Does anyone know how to turn this on?

    1) To send the message from within Word / Excel etc, make sure you select
    File > Send To > Mail Recipient rather than Mail Recipient (as attachment).

    The default button on the Standard toolbar in Office 2000 programs is Mail Recipient anyway.

    2) To add a text file to the body of an open message in Outlook, go to Insert > File. Select the file you want to appear within the body of the message. At the bottom right hand corner there is an Insert button, click the drop-down button next to this and select Insert As Text.

    3) To insert a picture file in the body of an open message, go to Insert > Picture > From File. Locate the file and click Insert.
