    If someone sends me a picture file as an attachment to an email message I
    get shown "Prohibited File Type..file deactivated". I can see the pic in the
    body of the message but can't open and view the picture file by clicking it?
    Similarly if I try to attach a picture file to a message I send that also
    gives the
    same warning both before sending and to the recipient?
    The files In question are jpg files.
    Anyone advise please?

    Uncheck
    - do not allow attachments to be save or opened
    - block images and other external content

    Check (optional)
    - show images and external content from email addresses in my Safe Senders list
