You can't change the actual physical size of the picture from within Outlook Express. Outlook Express can't change the viewed size either.

Just save these files to your Hard Drive (Rt-click , "Save as").
Open them with Windows Picture and Fax viewer and they'll be sized to fit the screen.
You should encourage your correspondent to send smaller pictures.

what i can't understand tho is why my friend's view is fine but mine is too big, we have the same setup - as far as i can see..

I don't have Outlook Express but have you asked your sender to resend them using a smaller size ?

But was it the same email with the pictures?
