If a jpg is attached, normally you just click on it.

Be careful that the file is actually a jpg, because often people email files with false file extensions in order to send viruses.

So a virus could be hiding in a file named photo.jpg.vbs

Where the html link in the email shows only photo.jpg, but it is actually a program (vbs file).

If you click on it, you get a virus, not the photo.

Always scan attachments with anti-virus software.

Your solution did the trick. I am glad I did not get into the registry as some had suggested.

As basically as your question is formed:
You cannot open a JPG in outlook 2003. Outlook is a mail client, and therefore, mail messages can be opened.

Go into Outlooks Setup and enable JPG Files.

This setting can be disabled to prevent Infections getting loaded. Many Companies do this I should add as Part of their Security Policy and if changed can lead to dismissal with no possibility of reemployment. What if anything is stated in the Computer Usage Policy at the company?
