Hi. I have tried searching everywhere for this problem, but can't find anything. Hope someone can help me change a setting etc.

My MS outlook works fine with everything except when I wish to forward an email with embedded pictures. I click on forward and the email takes a very long time for it to open.. Once it has finally opened, I can put contact names in to forward and then send. Everything goes fine once email has opened. All other emails seem to open fine when I am forwarding, including attachments etc.

Its emails like Cnet emails only 34kb in size. The forward icon highlights and its like outlook freezes until the email eventually opens.
Just so you know, if you double click on the email to open in inbox..it opens very quickly. Hope this all makes sense.

Is there a setting that I can change or does anyone know how I can fix this problem.

Many thanks in advance. Its driving me crazy as I need to forward these emails quite frequently.
