A reader had a question about resizing pictures in Outlook 2010. He upgraded from Outlook 2003 and used the Attachment pane to re-size images. Unfortunately for him, Outlook 2010 doesn't use the panes, but it does have an option to re-size attached images.
Outlook 2003′s Attachment pane has an option to re-size attached photos which is displayed by default when you first attach an image file to a message.
Note: If you open Windows Explorer and use the Send to MailRecipient command, Windows will offer to re-size the image.
In Outlook 2010, you need to go to the File tab, Info command after attaching the image. You can choose between resizing the attachment or keeping the original size. The re-size options are limited (to one!) compared to Outlook 2003, but most people would choose 1024 x 768 anyway. If you need better control over the file size, re-size it using an image editor program or use Windows Explorer's Send to MailRecipient command.
Outlook 2007 has an Attachment pane, although it's not displayed by default when you insert an image. You can display the Attachment pane by clicking the expand button in the Include section of the Home ribbon.
