Pictures in Outlook

I switched from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook. Now pictures come as attachments instead of being displayed in the body of the message. Is there a way to change this?

Do you have an explanation as to why you said No?

The inline display of attached images is not a feature of Outlook. I wish it was widely documented, but people ask about it a lot.

You can embed an image inside a html message, but a 10KB jpeg image can ballon the message size to 100's of kilobytes and that's not progress.

The answer is still no.

The inline picture show is only happening if the sender puts the email in that form.
