    Are you seeing a red box? or a red X. more than likley a red X if thats the case you need to check your internet advanced options set them all to default setting, reboot and try it. Usually that means the img src in the html header is pointing to a bad location. try different web sites, you can click on one of mine and you should see pictures.

    Now were talking apples and apples, I made the assumption based on your i.e.6.0 you could not see images while sufing. Opps, simpley put the file is not there to view. It could be the attched file never made it with the email, that happens often when folks start forwarding stuff or are sending large pictures over slow dialup connections. What email program are you using?

    I use Outlook not Outlook Express, I had to open it to make sure I give you the strait scoop. The picture is not in your computer, the link is there in the eml attachment the pictures is just not there. I have also made another asumption that your not hooked to a server or anything like that.

    I'm having the same problem, but for me it's not something to blow off. This is a user at my workplace (i'm in IT) with the problem. He gets the "red x" issue in Lotus Notes and when viewing yahoo mail through IE. Windows 2000, IE 6, latest version of java, all settings seem to be appropriate, service pack 3. Any ideas?

    Sounds like the same problem sure enough. I think the duck theroy would work here. (if it looks like a duck it must be) the file to view is just not where its supposed to be. Being in IT make sure the person has not changed any of his basic shortcuts to My Document or anything goofy like that. You know how they get board and start messing with stuff. Reset all the defaults, after they loose a files thell quite screwing with things.
