Outlook Express does not like 'em.

When I send a .jpg to my daughter as an attachment to an email she
cannot view or it seems even receive them. I am sending them via
Outlook and she uses Outlook Express. A message flashes up on her
machine that the file is suspect or something. Is there a setting
that she is missing or is the problem at my end. Any help would be
most welcome... Thanks!!

ucncheck Do not allow file attachments

Tell her to go to Tools/Options/Security and untick the obvious.

Send to all OE users using only Plain Text. OE "doesn't like" Outlook's RTF
formatting, especially when there's an attachment.

Thanks people for the useful hints. All is sorted now - I have
started using plain mail when I write to my daughter as suggested by PA
Bear.
