I know this topic has come up a number of times in the past, but none of the previously suggested solutions has worked for me.
From time to time I receive emails with embedded images. Sometimes the images show up, sometimes I just get a little red x in the upper left corner of a blank box where the image should be. Sometimes I am able to view the images IF I'm online at the time, sometimes not...
The interesting thing to me was that this morning I realized I had two copies in my inbox of the same email with embedded images in it. In the original, which was sent to me from someone else, the images show up fine (without having to be online or anything - they simply appear when I click on the email). I forwarded the piece to some friends, including myself in the To: list. In MY email, the images are all blank boxes with red x's.
I don't understand why/how the images would show up in one version of the email and not the other.
