change the pictures into ZIP files before attaching them and they should not appear in the E-mail.

Wak, I do not use zip as my freinds have had trouble opening them. thank you.

Try sending in Plain Text, rather than HTML.

Longjohn I had the solution to this some years back it involved going into the registry I got the answer on M/soft website posted by some guyfunnily enough at that time I had rang M/soft and they came back to me with no useful advice.

blatant copy & paste from the last post in thread on click here

""The proper way to stop the images showing in the body of the email involves editing the register so if you're brave enough to have a go at it back the register up 1st.

The solution, below is copied and pasted from.

When I receive an email containing image attachments they are all shown at the bottom. How can I prevent them from showing?

Outlook express inserts the attached images in the body of email messages in HTML format. It does so for your convenience. If you want to override this behavior, run regedit.exe, find a key like

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0
where {GUID} is a unique alpha-numerical string corresponding to your identity.

Set the DWORD value for "Automatically Inline Images" to 0. Feel free to create it if it is not there. ""
