    When I attach jpg photos to an email, they show up in the attachment pane below the address. They also show up in the body of the email as super giant pictures. I didn't think that jpg format would do that. What do I need to reset???

    When the picture shows in the body of the message, how are you attaching it? Are you choosing: Insert, File Attachment, or are you choosing Insert, Picture?[​IMG]
    Choosing 'File Attachment' only attaches the file. Insert Picture, puts it in the body.

    Most new digital cameras create photos too large for general email. You may want to resize them first. This is good for recipients that have dial-up or you want to send many photos at once. Use XP's built-in photo e-mail. Good tutorial here, near bottom of page:http://www.geekgirls.com/windows_email_photos.htm
    Note: XP does not change the size of your original photos; it merely creates copies in the new sizes and attaches those copies to your e-mail.

    If you want to attach a saved photo from Doc's , My Pictures , or somewhere, and they are big --just try this .
    With OE CLOSED , right click the image --select send to--select Mail recipient --select make my picture smaller. You will have three options for size . OE will open with downsized imaged attached.
    If I am not misunderstanding --this should make attached photos right size. >f

    I think you could use Googles Picasa 2 . A free photo program , easy to use , and if you do --will open OE by default if you desire, with {highlighted } downsized photos attached.
    >>>> http://picasa.google.com/
    This program will not conflict with any other photo editor --or program you have.
    When I send several large photos at one time--I use this because it easy to use.
    It will also allow you to do minor editing--remove redeye ect.
    Hope this helps >f
