Oh right, thanks Mathias - I'll get the ISP to check the servers then.

OK many thanks again. I ended up looking in  install tool as I could not
immediately find localconf.php[1] so I used the install tool and found in 5:
All Configuration under *$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['GFX']:*
*[imagefile_ext]* Commalist of file extensions perceived as images by TYPO3.
List should be set to 'gif,png,jpeg,jpg' if IM is not available. Lowercase
and no spaces between!

*[GFX][imagefile_ext] = gif,jpg,jpeg,tif,bmp,pcx,tga,png,pdf*
So I guess this is already configured OK?
Sorry I found localconf.php now and assume this is the line in question:
$TYPO3_CONF_VARS["GFX"]["imagefile_ext"] =
'gif,jpg,jpeg,tif,bmp,pcx,tga,png,pdf';    //  Modified or inserted by Typo3
Install Tool.
