I am running outlook express in Windows XP SP2. Quite frequently images in
emails are replaced by a large box with a small red x in the upper left
corner. I have unchecked the appropriate box in the security tab under
'Options' in the 'Tools' pull down menue of Outlook Express. I still can not
get certain images. It would seem that most often this problem occuts in
email that has been forwarded to me. Any resolution would be greatly
appreciated!

Where the pictures actually sent with the email?
File, Properties, Details tab, Message Source
Are there several lines of code at the end of Message Source?

Or File, Properties, what is the size of the email?

The pictures WERE NOTsent as attachments, I think they were supposed to be
embedded in the text portion of the email, but there are squares where the
pictures should have been. I can get photos that are sent as attachments.
There are many, many, many lines of code at the end of the message source,
much of what appears to be HTML. Keep in mind that my knowledge of HTML is
just enough to be dangerous but the last 100 lines or so would be HTML. FYI
- Seems most of what I get that results in the red x is from the same source
(person). Thanks for your help.

Pictures in an HTML message link to an attached picture or point to a Web
site.
What the message source has is text, link, text.
It does not have text, picture, text. You see text, picture, text.

This is a sample of code for a picture:
Pl65eGbxJ2awj9FkWQLC1xUNBf48D0j47Hbl3/qOujEz6MiGtnd

HTML code would be surrounded by <>.

Ron . . . I use HTML when I make changes to my web site and the last 100 or
so lines are HTML, (identifying font size, color, bold, etc), but I don't see
anything that looks like your sample of a typical image code. In the
'General' information tab when you click 'Properties' under the 'File'
pull-down menu it says: Attachments: None. Keep in mind that this is a
forwarded message with images in the original email but when it is forwarded
to me I get red x's instead of images.

I didn't say image code.
HTML image code would be this:
<IMG alt="" hspace=0 src="C:\My Pictures\77.jpg" align=baseline
border=0>
A simple image would be:
<IMG src="C:\My Pictures\77.jpg" >
If the picture is on the Internet:
<IMG src="http://agebb.missouri.edu/grph/smcommag.gif" >
When an email is forwarded an image is given an id number:
<IMG id=MA1.1122922564 height=351 alt=[]
src="ATT-0-4B126BD9FD13064AB28F9614505F1766-ATT135012.jpg" width=468
datasize="54565">

If pictures are inserted, then they aren't listed as attachments.

If the email size is 14 kb, then I doubt that the pictures were sent with
the email.

Ron,

I have no problem getting anything that is sent as an attachment to an
original email so we don't even need to go there. The problem exhists with
forwarded email. There are no HTML image codes in the message source, but
there are many lines of HTML text code . . . I have no doubt about this
because I use it. And there are no links pointing to anything on the web . .
.. I now how to identify these. However, as per your description of an image
ID number ( I had no previous knowledge of image ID's) there are 3 or 4 of
these in the Message Source intertwined with the HTML text code, hence (I
would assume)a forwarded message with images and text combined. But I don't
get the images or the text, just the boxes with the red squares. Hopes this
helps . . . thanks again for your time.

I don't know the purpose of the image IDs.
I looked at 2 messages:
One is a forwarded message with the image having an image id and the email
shows as having an attachment.
The other is a forwarded message with the image having an image id and the
email does not show as having an attachment.
Both messages have the image code at the end when viewing the message
details.
Again, the image code looks like this:
Pl65eGbxJ2awj9FkWQLC1xUNBf48D0j47Hbl3/qOujEz6MiGtnd

If the sender does not have 'Send pictures with message' checked in their
settings, you will get the red Xs.
If you don't have the image code at the end of the message, then the sender
did not send the pictures.

OE Tools > Options > Send > Mail Sending Format > HTML > Include pictures

Now if you send yourself an HTML message with an embedded/inserted pic, does
it display in the received message? If so, the problem isn't on your end.

Under Tools->Options->Security,

Did you verify that the "Block images and other external content in HTML
e-mail" setting is unchecked?
