Outlook Preview Pane

  return to sender 18:38 25 Oct 04

In outlook express, jpg attachments appear in the preview pane. Is there any way to get Outlook to display the same without having to open each file.

Disable Preview Pane as it is tantamount to opening email and any nasties therein will propagate on your PC.

if one uses an up to date anti virus combined with a decent firewall then any nasties should be caught.

I want to have the preview pane which is why i asked the question in the first place.

I'm sure someone will tell you how to do this plus you can always ask for help in ridding yourself of the "nasties" that WILL get through your "defences"

can i ask why you assume one is an amateur user who is careless enough to not recognize a nasty??

i use spybot, tds3 and ad aware, i have an av that checks once an hour for updates as well as a fully fuctioning firewall.

I simply asked for advice regarding the outlook preview pane, i did not ask for nasty removal advice, or how to stop the preview pane from functioning.

If one has no constructive comment on how to solve the issue i asked about, please refrain from answering at all.....

and yes salinger that was aimed squarely at you!!

Why not go back to Outlook Express?

i had thought of that cook2, but outlook has better functionality and contact management.....

I merely stated that someone will no doubt tell you how to do this - the consequences are of no concern to me.

Try this from your Inbox - View - current view and tick Messages. It has just worked for me. You'd think you should tick messages with auto preview but the preview disappeared when I tried that.

Hope this helps.

I can see no inference in Salingers response to suggest that you were an amateur in fact it was a perfectly innocuous answer so your attitude was uncalled for. Meshuga.
