People Can't Open My .jpgs/.bmps in Emails

Hi,

My problem is when I send .jpgs or .bmps to others. I attach the .jpg or .bmp to an email. It shows up on the email & I can open it. However, when I send it to others they can't. They say it becomes a .dat or some other file that's unopenable.

I had the free Adobe sample (not sure what it was called) that caused all my pics to be sent & opened in Adobe but I got rid of that (because they were unopenable by those I sent them to). So now all the .jpgs & .bmps are opened/sent by Microsoft products (e.g. I open them now using MS Paint, PhotoEditor or Picture & Fax Viewer) but the people I send the email to still can't open the attachments. Any suggestions?


Thanks,


Jerry

Sorry, forgot that. It's Outlook 2000.

I will try doing it in plain text as I was doing it in rich format.

Thanks,


Jerry
