Cannot paste image in the body of an email, it will only attach it as a file.

How do I paste an image into the body of the email? I want people to see the image in context with the text, not have to open it as an attachment. Outlook 2003 on Win 7 Prof 64 bit will not let me paste it in-line. I used to be able to do it on my old computer.

Thanks for your reply, however, it is HTML.

I copy an image then click into the body of the email where I want it to be and then click Edit Paste and instead of being in the body it is inserted as an attachment and therefore not visible in the body of the email.

People send me messages all the time with photos pasted in the content but I cannot seem to get Outlook 2003 to do the same anymore. I know I have been able to do it in the past but it doesn't work now. I am wondering if Windows 7 has changed the security and is preventing this?

Any help would be appreciated.

State the file type of the image. Try using Insert Image instead and browse to the location of the image.Russ Valentine

That is normally what I do when I want to add an attachment, so I did not think that would work. However, based on your suggestion (even though you did not actually stipulate it) I found that if I place my cursor in the body of my email then insert picture from file, it will place it into the body and not as an attachment. I thought that would only work with paste, so thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
