  • A red X instead of a pic on Outlook 2003

    Some graphics don't show on my MS Outlook 2003. (OS - WinXP Pro, SP2).
    Instead, all I see is a foursquare with a red X inside.

    See examples he

    What's wrong?

    By default, Outlook blocks images, because of malware that can be carried by images when displayed inline in an email. Normally, you should be able to right click and select "Download images" or something similar to reveal the images in the email.

      Thanks Paul.
      Yes, I know. My problem is that the X you saw show up f o l l o w i n g the "Download Image" request. The pics stay unrevealed.

        Are you using outlook offline?
        Could it be that they really are not available?
        All pictures or just certain emails?
        Is this at home or office? (POP vs Exchange)
        Hows the bandwidth?

          Boaz,
          1. I'm using outlook online
          2. The pics are surely available (but blocked)
          3. Some pictures show up, some don't. I failed to identify which are which.
          4. I'm referring to my home pc. My email protocol is IMAP.
          5. I'm connecting thru cables and can't blame bandwidth for this problem.
