Are you trying to attach a picture to an email and its not showing ?

This is an option tick box in Outlook Express tools options and tick allow attachments. Think this is what you mean.

Think it is the recipient who can disable this.

i might not have made my prob clear enough my prob is when i open oe 6 and create new mail and then select insert to send a pic i select attach file which then takes me to any of my choices and i select the pic i wish to send, problem is it also appears as a huge pic in the body of the message and what i want to do is send pic attachments without impinging on the body of the mail.

hope this gives more info.

If you don't want it to display when it's received, try this - Tools - Options - Send - click the *HTML Settings* button - untick the *Send pictures with text* box.

Try clicking on add attachment insead of insert picture.

Did you restart OE before testing it?

It on the top bar next to priority when you click compose it doesnt say add just "attach".

Does it work if you compose the mail in plaintext rather than html?
