Hi Graham,
I reckon I should leave this one for the "experts" because I had no idea you
could resize an attached picture when right clicking on the chosen picture.

If the "chosen" picture from My Pics is, for example, 100kb in size, then
that is the size it is going to stay.

Unless of course you meant "inserting" a picture, which you can resize in
the body of the email, but it will still stay the same "size".

Any pictures in My Pictures that I intend to send in OE as an attachment, I
make sure that they have first been edited to a more suitable size for
sending in an email

In my situation, the original picture saved (off my dig cam) to My Pictures
is roughly 300kb, much too large for sending in an email, so I edit it down
to around 50 -60 kb. But I guess none of this going to help you, is it?
Good Luck. :-)

Thank you Vonda, I have a program called "Resize" but that resizes all the
pics. in a folder. It is very convenient to be able to do just one when
sending an e-mail. Thanks,Graham
