I recieve .jpg pictures from every one else and I can view them in
Thunderbird.
have a look at;
   https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2307
which may handle problem.

main problem is as kevin is telling you, if mime type is written wrong in
email, thunderbird will have problem knowing what to do with attachment.

use<ctrl+u>  to look at full email. you should have below message body
something similar to;

|>   --------------090209040005060100010505
|>   Content-Type: image/jpeg;
|>    name="tbird app local folders.JPG"
|>   Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
|>   Content-Disposition: inline;
|>    filename="tbird app local folders.JPG"

this is how thunderbird knows that attachment is a jpeg file.

being that sender is using ms xp, there is your major problem. ms does not
comply with email rfc. if sender does not has file with a '.jpg' extension,
ask them to try sending with extension name.


I think this may explain it here. Every picture shows this Content-Type

Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
	name="ATT00049.gif"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-ID:<00bc01c9e13f$7f193f00$7221D355 lynn>

Thanks guy for your help I learn something new today.
I could say in about 50 years I would know everything there was about Linux, to know it all.

NOT!!!
