My wife's old G4 PowerMac running OS X10.5.8 recently stopped displaying photos in Mail.  Instead, all that displays is message "Missing Plug-in" and the photo number or caption.  This happens with all incoming e-mails, as well as outgoing e-mails generated from iPhoto, or just standard e-mails composed in Mail with an attached  photo.  The photo is there when she clicks on "Quick Look" but not in the field of the message.  HTML images in ads display fine...only individual photo attachments are missing.  Please help.  Thanks.

Mac OS X (10.5.8)
