Email contains Red crosses where picture should be

I've received an email where the pictures have not been downloaded but a box with a red cross in the corner is shown. The box contains a link to a web page I want to go to but whenever I click on it I get the 'page not found' error screen. Am running Wanadoo broadband on Windows 98SE and with AVG Free anti-virus & Zone Alarms firewall.
Any ideas why the email doesn't download fully and why I can't access the page. The page definitely exists as I tried the link on pc at work and it displayed fine.

If you are running XP you may have Email protection enabled. At the top of the white email box, just below the grey is there a yellow bar asking you to click on it to view the picturers.

I missed the bar for the first two weeks after installing XP and wondered about all the red X's.
