    First Name:
    Images embedded in emails are being blocked and all I get is the little square with the little red "x" in it.
    Usually at the top of the email there is a question, having problems viewing images, open email as a web page.
    I find it frustrating and infuriating to have to open emails as a web page every time I want to look at them. My email service is provided by BT Yahoo and I have been told by a BT Yahoo representative that this is because of new security measures in ie 11 and Outlook. Is this really the case and have I really got to open every email as a web page to view the images. When I look at my emails on the BT Yahoo web page the images are also blocked there too.
    This seems to be a relatively new problem, I didn't remember having it a few weeks ago. I have checked my Outlook settings and they are set to download images.
    Could I uninstall ie 11 and install a lesser version, say 10 perhaps? and would that resolve the problem. Have Microsoft done a security update that is causing this to happen and if so could I undo it.
    I am running Windows 7 Professional, Outlook as part of Office Professional 2007, ie 11 and I rely on Microsoft Firewall and Security Essentials for protection and I manually run Malwarebytes Anti-Maleware about once a week.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    My personal recommendation is to use Firefox instead. I find it much more user friendly. There are a lot of addons to make it more functional. I would at least download it for trouble shooting purposes to see if you can see images with it. In my Yahoo mail there is an option to show images.
