    Regarding Augie65's solution to red X in place of pictures, it does not work. The block images box in Outlook Express is already unchecked. Any other ideas?

    Check out this:
    Open Outlook Express, Tools> Options> Send tab> check HTML radio button under Mail Sending Format then click HTML Settings button and check Send pictures with messages box. If the picture is linked to a web page, you will have to be connected to the internet to view the picture. You might check with the sender whose pictures you can't see and make sure that they have the Send pictures with messages checked on their program.

    Some additional settings to check

    1) Security Tab.
    Check "Internet Zone."
    2) Uncheck "Block images and other external content in HTML email."
    3) Read Tab
    Uncheck "Read all messages in plain text."
    If you don't do this you will not see any images or stationery in email. So
    this step is simple but it's very important!
    4) Check "HTML" under the heading "Mail Sending Format"

    An easy way to see if pictures show up or not is select an image file from your hard drive and send yourself an email with a picture attached.
