Little red X 's in emails

  toogie 21:10 25 Sep 2005

Many of my emails have images replaced with small red x's in a square box.
I assume this has been done by my Zone Alarm or Windows security. The images are from trusted sources, how can I get to see them ?

In OE go to Tools > Options > Security tab and UNtick the "Block images and other external content in HTML emails", click Apply and OK to exit.

If you don't want to unblock all the pictures you can click on a bar at the top of the email to unblck just those ones

Sorry Maj this 'box' is already unticked

And Strawballls, I cannot see the 'bar' at the top of email to which you refer ?

Are you still connected to the internet when you try to view these images?

Yes Vog I am still connected to internet when viewing them.

Have you tried sending a picture to yourself, Occasionally if someone tries to forward on an email containing pictures the pictures are block and appear as red crosses.

Hamish I don't appear to have a problem with pictures that arrive as attachments.
The problem comes with images associated with jokes etc that are included within the body of the email rather than an attachment.

  Hamish 10:15 26 Sep 2005

Yes. Same here. A friend found that if she copied the message containing jokes and then pasted the contents into a new email the jokes could be sent and received

Thanks I'll ask the sender to try the same. Will let you know how that turns out.

Appears to be a problem caused by way in which these are forwarded. Followed Hamish's advice and asked friend to copy and resend. They arrived in full. Thanks all.
