Cant open .JPG from outlook without first saving to disk.

Post by CJCoate » Sun, 15 May 2005 06:05:53


Outlook 2003 makes me save .gif and .jpg files to disk instead of opening
them directly. I understand the security concerns that led to this.
That said, I still want to stop this from happening. Is there a way to make
it allow me open the .jpg files directly?
If not I will just downgrade to an earlier version of Outlook.

Thanks

It doesn't force you to do this by default. What happens when you try? Do
you get any error message?

On the prefs box, from tools>options, one of the tabs has
an option to "prevent from opening attachments that could be
a virus". Remove that check, apply and ok. Close OL/OLE and
reopen.

In Romans 1 there are qualities of Unregenerate man listed
which describe him in the last days.
Is your quality found on this list??

That is only true for Outlook Express. The question was about Outlook.

When I click on the .JPG, I get a popup box titled "Attachment Security
Warning" It says "This file may contain a virus that could be harmful to
your computer. You must save this file to disk before it can be opened. It
is important that you be certain that this file is safe before you open it"
After that there is a "Save to disk" button and a "Cancel" button. There is
no option to not save to disk and just open it.


Thanks
