Hi, I have a problem where for some reason all of a sudden when I go into my Microsoft office outlook and I receive an ad or something similar, I usually have to right click on the X that is on the item that has arrived and it opens up, but now all it says when I right click on the X is copy?so I dont get to see any photos etc just the info in writing, can you please tell me how I can return to opening with right click?

Could be that the Outlook setting not to download pictures from the internet has been changed?

I switch to offline mode to view suspicous emails just in case. This protects you from downloading images in an email - as many emails are imcomplete when you download them and images are pulled from a server when you open the email a technique used by spammers to confirm the email address is valid.

Hi,what I did was re-install and repair and it now seems to have corrected itself for the moment, touch wood, thanks for your help.
