    When receiving certain forwarded email with images and/or pictures as part of
    the content, instead of getting the images and/or pictures in the email, I
    get a red x in a box, up in the corner of what should have been the image or
    piture. Under Tools> Options>Security in Outlook Express, I do not have the
    following box checked : Block images and other external content.
    If I click on: File> Properties>, Detail>, Message source, there are several
    image ID's. What is preventing me from seeing the forwarded images?

    You would probably get more suggestions by posting this question in an
    Outlook Express group rather than a Media Center forum. Just offhand, are
    you given the option (usually just below the Subject line) to show the
    blocked content?

  3. microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general might be a better newsgroup to
    ask...we support the Media Center functionality here.

    I found some info that might be helpful:

    To help protect your privacy, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 is configured by
    default to block downloading of external content from the Internet. Junk
    e-mail senders have used the capability to link to external servers for
    content to their advantage by including something called a "Web beacon" in
    e-mail messages. A Web beacon notifies the Web server when you read or
    preview the message, validating the e-mail address to the junk e-mail sender,
    which can result in more junk e-mail messages being sent to you.

    If the e-mail message is from someone you trust, and you expected to receive
    the message, you can choose to download the blocked images or other content.
    Click the InfoBar (InfoBar: Banner near the top of an open e-mail message,
    appointment, contact, or task. Tells you if a message has been replied to or
    forwarded, along with the online status of a contact who is using Instant
    Messaging, and so on.) at the top of the message, or right-click the blocked
    image. On the menu, click Download Pictures.

    If you regularly receive e-mail messages from this person, you can choose to
    always download pictures and other content in e-mail messages you receive
    from this person by adding the sender’s e-mail address to your Safe Senders
    List (Safe Senders List: A list of domain names and e-mail addresses that you
    want to receive messages from. E-mail addresses in Contacts and in the Global
    Address Book are included in this list by default.). To do this, right-click
    the blocked image and select an option on the shortcut menu to update your
    Safe Senders to include the sender’s e-mail address. Outlook always downloads
    external content in e-mail messages from people or domains on the Safe
    Senders List.

    No not in this particular situation. Thanks for letting me know I am in the
    wrong area. I didn't realize there were alternative groups.
