opening jpg attachments

By LANAdmin ·
I have a PC running XP Home SP1 and Outlook Express 6. Within OE, I recieve emails with JPG attachments but when I try to open them with OE, a message is displayed stating that no program is assoicated with the file and to create one within Folder options. If I save the file to the hard drive, I can double-click the file within Explorer and the file opens which tells me the file association is correct. Does anyone have any suggestions so I can open the attachments within Outlook Express.

Which program do you use to open JPG's? The 'Windows Picture and Fax Viewer' or some sort of Paint package?
Does the JPG have spaces in the filename? That can cause problems if the file assoc is not 100% set up (Quotes are req. around the parameter).

I am having problems with having Kodak Easyshare as the default program to open Jpgs. If I change it to the Picture and Fax Viewer it works fine. Therefore it appears that the problem is with the Kodak software, I will try to reinstall it and see if that works.
