Take a look at IrfanView; www.irfanview.com

It's a free viewer that can handle all sorts of image files and, if you d/l it, I think the default settings will automatically 'associate' it with all the usual graphics formats like jpg, gif and bmp so that they open automatically in IrfanView when they're clicked. Can't be 100% sure because its been a long time since I got my copy!!

Alternatively, there is a method by which you can 'associate' certain file types with an existing program on your computer by using Windows Explorer. Unfortunately, I'm not clear enough on the exact method to post it and I wouldn't want to mislead you or screw up your comp.

I'm sure someone who knows the exact method will be along soon.

Are these pics in the message body? Are the ones you can't see from one person in particular? Can you see the pics in other e-mails? If it's the same or one person maybe the show pictures in messages setting isn't on on thier computer.
Fill us in with some more details and we'll try and help.

I guess you use Outlook Express.

Outlook Express and Internet Explorer share the same settings. You can open Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Options > Advanced. There go to Multimedia and ensure that a tick mark is placed next to show images.

Hope this works.
