Just for the heck of it

In my first reply, I asked for the file extension of the picture files. Since you didn't give that information, I'll ask again and maybe we can determine what program will open that file type and you can make that association. It would make sense that you'd want to view your own picture files and associating by file type is a good way to simplify the process. Once an association is made, maybe you can try to resend the file to see if that corrects your issue. I don't use hotmail, however, so can't envision exactly what you are seeing. I use Thunderbird and gmail and both of those will send attachments in the way I mentioned. I've never tried to send a file that I couldn't view myself so I've not faced your exact scenario but it really should work without a program association on the local PC. Something is amiss. I did run into an incident where a person had a mouse setting problem that was sending the "open" command with a single click instead of double click. It should require two clicks to open an image file. One to select and the other to open it. I suppose it's possible that your mouse opens programs or file with a single click rather than a double click. That's about all I can think of. Let us know what the file extension is, we can determine what programs will open it and, if you have one that will, you can create the association and hopefully make that message go away.
