    Although I don't have the 'Block images and other external content in HTML
    checked, some emails have images blocked or at least marked with the x in
    upper corner. I've checked settings in my Anti-Virus software and although I
    have it
    scan mail I see no settings to block images.

  2. It may be the images are incorrectly referenced. Try taking the URL for the
    image (use CTRL-F2 to view the source code of a message) and pasting it into
    IE's address bar and see if the image shows. Otherwise, your associations
    could be wrong. See

  3. Are these all Forwarded messages?

    If you send yourself an HTML message with an embedded graphics file, do you
    see the image or the RedX?

    It seems images are being blocked from mail from 1 place.. JC Penney.
    It appears all others don't get blocked. When I click in the 'image' it
    up the site or link properly.

  5. Then I suspect the message isn't properly formatted to begin with, James.
