Viewing images in Windows Live Mail

  tallboy 22:36 30 Jan 2010

Is there a 'switch' anywhere in Windows Live Mail (or in Windows 7 - my OS) that enables you to view images embedded within emails without having to click on the 'show images' tab every time?

I know it says that images that link to external websites are blocked to protect my privacy, but with so many emails written using HTML, having to click on 'Show images' every time is a pain!

Open Live Mail > Tools > Options > Security Tab > Download Images > Uncheck 'Block Images'

On Windows Live Mail it's Tools - Safety Options - Security etc.

Many thanks for the prompt replies fsbb & Sea Urchin. I located the appropriate check box and de-selected it. Images are now shown automatically.

Good to hear that - thanks for the feedback.
