Default Re: Outlook 2007 can't open jpg attachments

No, that is it; there is no specific thing you have to do for emails.
Attachments are opened with their default file handler as defined in
Windows.
When you save the attachment to your Desktop first, can you open it then?

If not, see if clearing your Outlook Temp folder solves it.

Default Re: Outlook 2007 can't open jpg attachments

Thank you, I was wandering the web after your suggestion and found mention of
a preview option for attachments, the photos were visable with that feature.
I had not noticed that option before so I went in and turned the option off
and my jpg files opened as usual. Don't have a clue why but there it is. I
guess computing by "old lady's" intuition still works sometimes. I appreciate
your help, I don't always have the correct terms in my brain to even look
for a solution and you sent me in the right direction.
