    Hello again. I'm brand new to Windows Live mail and currently using WLM 2011. I have quite a few subscriptions to Newsletters that send automatic e-mails that include pictures, but the pictures don't come through, only the text.

    For example, today, Cooking.com sent a newsletter, which usually includes pictures, which I want to see. I open it to find only text, no pictures. I go to forward it to someone, and lo and behold, the pictures show up on my "sent" e-mail.

    Outlook Express used to ask via a bar at the top of my e-mail if I wanted to allow the pictures to be shown with the e-mail I just opened. I could choose yes or no. Seems I don't have that choice in WLM, or that I can find.

    I did go to Options (on the WLM pane) then Security Options and under the Security tab, I have unchecked the boxes in "download images". I do see where I can check "show images and external content sent from email addresses in my safe senders list". Is this the only way I can allow or make the pictures appear in my incoming e-mail, by manually adding an e-mail address to this list?

    Any insight would be very helpful. I am not a computer wiz so if you can keep it simple I would be thankful.
