Re: outlook rebooting itself when messages contain some sort of graphics

I was having the same issue with messages from Groupon, in fact that
was the main reason I joined this list, and never intended to stay
this long. Below is the solution that Quenton provided me that stopped
the crashing problem for me.
"Another setting which may make a difference, is an advanced setting:

1. Press NVDA+control+g to open NVDA's general settings.
2. Press CONTROL+SHIFT+TAB to move to the last tab
3. Press SPACEBAR to check that you acknowledge the warning.
4. Press TAB until you get to "Use UI Automation to access Microsoft
Word Document Controls when available".
5. Press SPACEBAR to toggle that
6. Press ENTER to close settings."

When nvda encounters a graphic within the message,
