New to Vista and chose Microsoft Outlook for emails as I loved it with 98 and XP. Most emails with attachments come through fine but when .jpg or .wmv files come through all I see are numbers and letters instead of pics and videos, any ideas please?
Thanks SteveT.

Do you see a button with a paperclip on it (usually in the upper right of the message pane)? When I used it for newsgroups, that's how attachments showed up (at least in newer versions of Outlook Express; in older versions, the pic would just appear in place).
Also, if you go to tools, options, advanced, security, "do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially contain a virus". I noticed that if that box was checked, I couldn't even download attached pictures!!! (dumb Microsoft!) I don't know if in later updates they fixed that.

Not sure if those 2 anecdotes will help, but just thought I'd toss them out.
