"seeing" squares with red crosses in emails

  PvG 17:15 15 Mar 2005

How do I get Outlook to show what is in the squares with red crosses that I get?
Happens in Internet Exporer too?
Happens when eBay email comes, I can't see what I imagine are photos/graphics.

Above the e-mail message doe's it not say "some messages have been blocked, click here to download"?

In outlook express select Tools tab,Options,security and untick "Block images and external content in HTML e-mail"

Not that I haev noticed. The email, when saved still has the squares with red crosses, adn I must have set something up in Explorer or Outlook to block something, but I don't know what.

Thank you ICF, that has restored the graphics and pictures.

In IE go to tools/intenet options/advanced and scroll down to the Multmedia section.Make sure there is a tick in the show pictures box.

The information ICF supplied is correct, how far do you get with it?.

I too have this problem and I have tried the suggestion by ICF ( Tools,Options,Security ) but I don't have the 'Block Images and external content etc' for me to tick.
What am I doing wrong.
