    Pictures not showing up in attachments
    I am receiving .rtf files that have pictures in them but i do not see the pictures when i open the attachment. If i send the file to my pc, i can see the picture.

    Is this the correct forum? Does anyone know what i can do to be able to see the rtf document with the pictures

    Please any help. Not sure where things went wrong. still can not view embeded rtf pictures

    I receive .rtf attachments almost every day from my office and all i do is click the "quick look " button and there they are , then if its something I want to save I just send it to downloads.. So perhaps you could try this or right click and select " open with "

    This is an off-the-wall suggestion, but IIRC, RTF files with graphics embedded in them should have the .RTFD extension rather than just RTF. Try that and see if that helps.

    Do you have office ? If not try downloading OpenOffice from here:
    OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

    You should have no trouble opening it with that.
