You solved a puzzle for me here. In browsing through askLeo.com, I also found how to delete an entry in my Favorites (right-click it), how to delete my entire history as well as ALL the places it needs to be deleted, and the names of several other Help sites. Thank you. I'll be back.
Here is a variation of the same problem.
I use Outlook 2003, set to a default of HTML email. When I right-click and try to paste an image into an email that I'm writing, about 20% of the time I get a box with the red X. When that happens, if I then open a new (blank) email, paste the image into that email, copy it and paste it back into the original email, it works. Most of the time the image source is a screen-capture program such as Print Screen Deluxe (the image is documentation of a problem or an explanation of something). As far as I can tell, there is no connection between the image source and the occurance of this problem. Outlook 2003 sometimes just doesn't want to accept pasted images -- it's flakey.
I've found even in OL2002, sometimes a user will see the image inline and sometimes as an attachment. I've racked my brain on why this doesn't always work and there doesn't seem to be any explanation.
I'm wondering if there is a way for Microsoft Outlook to display the attached images in the body of the email (perhaps an add-on?). I know Microsoft Outlook Express does this without an add-on. Thanks in advance for your help.

No. Not that I'm aware of. It's one of the many differences between
Outlook and Outlook Express.

Your comment about Microsoft office outlook is misleading. Outlook does allow you to attach an Image inline.
1. Go to the menu option in Insert->Picture
2. Select "from file" (or any other option)
3. You can now see the image inline.
I want to use outlook express for send my email, but when i used html body with picture and text , (images saved in web address)after recived peaple my email they can not see images in my html body, for example in gmail. images shown as attachment.
Is there any way for resove this peoblem.(i didn't have this peoblem with Microsoft outlook).
Is there a way for outlook express to NOT display attached pictures in the body of a message?
Running Outlook 2003 SP3 or SP2, I find that while I can insert and view an inline image as Keshav Ram describes, using Paste instead returns a red X. Subsequent viewing of the message by other users displays the inline image properly. So for me it's probably something user profile-specific which is preventing the display of the image inline.
More info - I am able to paste and view an inline .jpg from a source .jpg as displayed in IE6 (WinXP) but get the red X if try to view the same in html message body using source .jpg as viewed in PaintBrush (pbrush.exe) instead of in IE.
