    e-mail reception

    I receive e-mail from an individual that is sent in a format thar causes microsoft picture it express 2000 to attempt to open it. The mail doesn't have a picture attached and I get a screen telling me pictureit doesn't recognize a photo. What is happening here? Is the fault with the sender or me? Not all his mail to me causes this.

    What email client are you using to read the mail?
    Are the problem emails plain text, tich text or HTML?
    Has the sender inserted a picture then deleted it before sending the mail?

    I use Outlook Express 6;plain text; no picture added or deleted by sender but sometimes an attachment being forwarded that he has received from someone else.

    Make sure you're able to see all file extensions, including those that are know (ie... DO NOT HIDE KNOW FILE EXTENSIONS).

    I'm wondering if you've received some email that has been infected with a virus. Sometimes you'll get a picture.jpg.vbs (or similar) that look harmless, because they will only display picture.jpg if you're hiding the known file extensions.
