    I get an E mail with some photos attached, but the only way I can view them is to rt. click and save as ,and put them in My Documents then open them. Is there an easier way?

    Hi
    in your security settings try unchecking ...do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus

    "cannot open e-mail attachments in outlook express" - vcn.com

    PS - ALWAY'S include version info when asking about a program!

    GlobalForce I have found that if I have Irfanview ,it will open the photos. So I am going to open a new post about Irfanview.

    I did go to vcn.com and couldn't find what I needed . Sipstick.com seemed to be about Outlook and I use Outlook express. I do appreciate your help.

    The opening of the photos is not being blocked by OE. I have downloaded Irfanview and that will open them. Now I will have to see if it will interfere with Photo Shop Elements.
