Outlook viewing attachments

When I receive an email that has embeded pics, I can see the pics and text 
together as they should be, when going directly to att.net.  Also, same on 
iphone.
On Outlook, however, the pics show up as attachments and each must be opened 
separately.  I am sure there is a setting to make them show in the main body 
of the message.  Can you help me?

If you're "sure" there's a setting, you've deceived yourself.  How pictures 
appear in a message in Outlook is determined by how the sender included them 
in the message.  Web browsers can't "do" attachments and so show the pictures. 
It's clear from Outlook's behavior, however, that your sender did not embed 
the images, but attached them.  Outlook will always show attachments as 
attachments.

Look in the raw source for the e-mail (but don't use Outlook since you never
get to see the raw source of an e-mail).  Check the MIME part in the body of
the e-mail in which the attachment is encoded.  Is it set to:

  disposition=inline

or

  disposition=attach

If the disposition is set to "attach" then the recipient's e-mail client is
supposed to show it separate of the e-mail body, like a paper clip icon or a
list of attachments.  When disposition is "inline", the e-mail client is
supposed to show the *content* of the MIME part within the body of the
e-mail.

If it is an HTML e-mail and the "attachment" of which you speak is, say, an
image then it will show up in the body of the e-mail if an <IMG> tag was
used to place that content within the body of the document.
