Are you talking about. . .
a picture within an email message? I've found that AOL changes the extension for some reason. When an AOHell user sends a picture, the AOHell email changes it to something odd. Have you tried to save the picture and then open it? You may have to change the extension.

Re: CAN NOT READ .JPG FILES IN OUTLOOK EXPRESS
Jim, Can you open other jpg files which are already on your hard drive? An easy solution is to right click on the .jpg file choose "Open with" then choose the program from the list that you want to open the jpg file with. The default for jpg files in Windows XP would be Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. You could also use Internet Explorer.
I am having this issue, but I do not have the option to open with, I only have the opptions of open or save as.
How do I get the open with option.
I'd try this. Install IRFANVIEW and ..
Let it associate with JPEG, JPG, etc.
Re: a twist
rcorbett28, Which version of Windows are you running? If it's not Windows XP you must hold the shift key down on your keyboard then right click on the file to get the ''Open with'' option.
If you're running Windows XP go to the link below and scroll down to Line 220 (left column) and click on ''Restore Open With on the Right Click'' to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
How to get to Folder Options and set file types
1. Open up My Computer.
2. Click the Tools menu.
3. Click Folder Opitons.
4. Click the File Types tab.
5. Scroll down until you see the format Outlook Express won't open.
6. Highlight it and click "Change".
7. Click on your photo editor program from the list. (If you don't have one, use Internet Explorer.)
8. Click "OK"
9. Close the Folder Options window.
10. You're done!

Cannot read .jpg files in Outlook Express
It happened to me as well after I installed IE 8. Once I uninstalled the IE8, the previous IE7 came back and everything worked as before for opening .jpg files. Good luck, Kaspar
