    Problems opening pictures in some e-mails. The pictures quite often have a little red x in the top left corner. I have gone to view-options and the html clicked some times it will work,sometimes it won't

    Hi parsnips

    In Outlook Express,
    Tools > Options > Security tab
    Uncheck: Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus
    Apply, OK to save and close.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.

    Regarding the emails with little red crosses instead of pictures. This can be a symptom of the senders 'Temp Internet Files' folder being full. Nothing to do with you. If these emails come from the same person then that is probably the cause. Get them to empty said folder and try again.
