Default Red x

I know this subject has been discussed before but I haven't found anything
that covers my problem. All email I receive from this one person has the red
x if there is a picture in it. BUT, all email I get with pictures from others
works fine. Before you tell me it's on his end, he also sends it to several
other people I know and they say theirs has the picutres and NOT the red x. I
have checked my firewall, virus, etc. settings and can not find the problem.
It's strange to me that all email works except the ones from him and that
others gets the same email from him that is sent at the same time and theirs
has the picture. It seems like if it's a setting on my end, then why are the
others working? Plus, if it's something he's doing, why does everyone else
get it with the picture and not the red x? Can anyone explain this? This is
weird. Thanks.

Default Red x

Is he Forwarding all of these messages and is he an AOL subscriber and/or
are the other recipients AOL subscribers?

If you can send yourself an HTML message with embedded graphics and you can
see the graphics, not a Red X, in the received email, the problem is NOT on
your end.

Default Red x

Yes, he is forwarding them but no he nor any of the others are AOL
subscribers. Yes, I can send myself one with the graphics showing and can
receive from others with it showing. But, this is the strange part, he is
sending these messages all as a group. He and others including myself all use
the same internet service. The others get these same emails with the graphics
showing. If it was on my end, I wouldn't be receiving from myself and others
with the graphics showing, would I. Plus, if it was on his end, the others
that he sent it to at the same time as myself wouldn't be getting them with
the graphics showing, would they? This is weird. Can anyone explain this?

Assuming he sends all the mails in one go and not separate sessions, then if
some recipien ts see the images OK and some do not, it is NOT anything at
his end. It's highly likely to be a setting on your own computer's client
or in your account settings at your ISP.

Too many variables/possibilities and too little detail to target a response
accurately, but ...
-- Is your ISP scraping and deleting the attachments? Usually that's a
selection around the AV protection area of the ISP's settings, on his
server.
-- Are you the only one in your group that uses your particular ISP? ISPs
can have differeing settings and defaults so if ISP X works OK, that doesn't
really say ISP Y will work OK.
-- Have you set your client Options to not accept attachments that could be
dangerous? If so, turn it off.
-- The fact that others see them isn't helpful unless you also know that all
the others are using the SAME mail client and version of their mail client
as you are using, have all selected the same virus and spam an d attatchmen
t settings the ISP may offer and all are identical.
-- Have you, just for grins, tried installing Thunderbird or any other mail
client to see if it sees the images OK? If another client does see them,
then it's going to be some setting on your end. Actually that's what I
suspect it's going to end up being anyway. Try comparing you computer
account and ISP settings with someone and look for differences, and/ore try
installing a different mail client. The browser counterpart of Thunderbird
is FireFox - an excellent browser with only a couple very annoying
"features" but they're harmless.

Yes, he sends his emails in one go but the people I have asked are using the
same internet service I am and he does also. Their email is fine with no red
x. BUT, all other email from others I get has the pictures even from the same
internet service that we use. If it was something on my end wouldn't it be
doing it with all of my email and not just the ones from him? I have tried
Thunderbird and it is doing the same thing. No pictures. No, I don't have
Outlook Express set to not accept attachments that could be dangerous? That
has been turned off and still is. It's just strange to me that I get embedded
pictures just fine from everyone except him and that others get it just fine
from him even though we all use the same internet service.

Hmm, beats me! All I can think of is to go thru OE's Tools; Option and
Control Panel's Internet Options, looking in each tab for anything that
might cause it. Did you try CTRL-ALT-H, just for grins? Probably not the
fix, but ... can't hurt.
I'd ask your ISP about it too; they might have something turned on that
you're not aware of.
Beyond that, all that's left is file corruption or malware, AFAIK right
now.

Hope you'll let us know when you get it solved?

HTH,

Twayne

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It provides no
additional protection, it may be causing the problem, and even Symantec says
it's not necessary:

QP
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.

By any chance is he on a Macintosh computer? Some older systems do not
append a file suffix ".jpg" so A Windows system has no way of defining
what it is unless there is personal intervention in correcting the
filename.

If on a Mac his system may also be encoding the file differently before
attaching for purposes of sending via e-mail.

If you are seeing the red 'x' that may also mean your security settings
are too high and OE is preventing them from displaying. Now I see you
said you checked those but try checking again.

OE is dependant on IE so your security settings for IE would be where to
look.

Also while you may see a red x in the display pane, are the images
actually attached there and can you save them to disk to view that way?
