    Attachment..how to reduce to screen size

    I am new to Windows Mail. I receive scanned documents and they have copme
    through on my old email package small enough to read in the body of the
    email. They also would print on a letter size paper. With Windows Mail the
    jpg attachment extends past my message body and will not automatically print
    on letter size. I have to go to the attachment and print each attachment
    individually. Can someone tell me how to reduce the "visual size" not file
    sizefor easier viewing. Thank you

    I don't think there is much you can do with a received message. You can try
    saving it to the Desktop and then rename it to give it a mht file extension
    and then it will open in IE and the image will "shrink to fit". Otherwise
    you'd have to go in and change the image width and height accordingly in the
    HTML to get it to fit.

    Thank you Steve for your quick response. I have opened a folder on my desktop
    marked "Files to Print" and I am saving all attachments in here. Then when
    all done I am selecting them and printing them that way. All these jpg scans
    are then printed on standard letter size paper.
    This is at least quicker than selecting each attachment individually and
    printing.

    If they are attachments and not embedded images, then that is likely the
    only way to do it.
