Web site Pictures not viewable / Email rule

  collinsc 17:07 25 Sep 2008


My relative has a web site designed by someone. I have 2 questions:

1 - The pictures on the website are viewable by myself (Vista) but not on his PC (XP 6). Im assuming he can not view them due to this difference? I can't think of any other reason?

2 - On his contact email address from the website-if we were to set it up so it said for example "Whatever" in the subject line, could we then ensure that any messages sent to his email address would end up in a certain folder i.e. by setting up a rule? He wants any mail sent to this address to go to a certain folder. The web designer has set up forwarding - so whenever a mail is sent to this address it actualy goes through to another..

Sorry for all these questions in one go - there will be a few more though!

1. The viewing of the pictures should not be caused by the difference in OS (Vista v XP) but could be down to browser/anti-virus/anti-malware settings. I am assuming that he is viewing the website via the net and not on his PC without being connected.

2. Read Outlook help about setting up rules. This is fairly straightforward.

Does he get a cross where there should be pics?

To see pictures when browsing the Internet - In Internet Explorer click on Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab and then scroll down to Multimedia and make sure that Show Pictures box is ticked.

Interestingly no, he does not get crosses - which i found odd.

technotiger - cheers ill get him to try that, though i assume he can see pictures on other sites, else he would have mentioned this im sure.
