I have one contact that I have email problems with. When I email him, he cannot open or view any pictures whether in the body or as an attachment from me. However if I send the same pictures to a third party and they the forward them to him, he can then view them. The other problem I have with this contact is when he sends text documents to me, they are always received in plain text regardless of his email editor settings. Along with plain text message I will also receive several pages of garbled alpha-numerical text that come with the original email or in subsequent separate emails that he did not send.

Help if you can!!!

If you go into your contacts and open that contact you have an issue with, double click on the field "email"

There is a "email properties" box with an internet format drop down box.

Sometimes it can be set to "plain text only"

Most of mine are set to "Let Outlook decide" , you can compare this to your other contacts that work OK.

I'm using Outlook 2003, hope that helps! :thumbsup:
