    Sometimes an email arrives that is supposed to contain pictures (in-line, not attachments) and they show up as empty boxes with a little square in the upper left corner. Neither the sended nor I have any idea why this happens or how to correct it.
    I'm using Thunderbird (WinXP) and my email address is provided by Hover.com. The main sender that this happens with has an email address of citilink.net.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    kind-a surprised no-one jumped in on this one, :eek:
    the solution is usually something very simple, there are LOTS of possibilities, and, there are MANY pages on the 'net devoted to this subject, so to make the answer as short as possible, and not just re-post what is already written, try these answers in the order I have posted them:

    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/redximage.xml

    http://ask-leo.com/why_dont_pictures_show_when_i_visit_websites.html


    if you tried the suggestions from the above and are still are seeing the "dreaded x-box" - this goes on considerably and you should find something here:

    All of the suggested articles talk about Internet Explorer and web sites. I'm talking about images in emails using Thunderbird. I wouldn't know how to apply any of the fixes to my situation.

    Well, I've done the HTML thing and the Proxy thing - I just can't spend any more time on it. Thanks for trying.
