    I have a lot of email with boxes in them with little red x's that are suppose to be pictures. What is the problem and how do I fix it. I am not very smart when it comes to computers. Thanks

    If you are using Outlook Express, click tools/options/read and see if the box for Read all messages in plain text is checked. If it is, uncheck it, click apply, then click ok. That should allow you to see images in your email, but it is less safe security-wise than using the plain text option, which is why someone may have checked it to begin with.
