    An old problem has come back.

    I am seeing some graphic items in some of my OE emails not displaying, but rather showing a large bordered empty box with a small square box containing a red X in the upper left corner of the larger box.

    I am running WinXP/MCE/SP3/IE8 via Comcast.net. I recall having this problem years ago, and solved it then. I do not recall what the fix was. Help?

    Hans,

    Thank you for your speedy reply. I read the link KB, and decided to heed the warning about trying to cure this problem; i.e., I may introduce an even bigger problem if I reset OE to display these items.

    I have been living with the x for some time now, and it is just an annoyance. I do not recall it causing me a large problem since it first returned to my PC.

    I will keep a note as to your link, though, just in case I dare give in and reset OE.

    Often, when an email is forwarded, the image will not be sent for a variety of reasons. Usually it is because the image is not present on the senders computer, internet based email for instance. The sender will get a message to the effect that, some of the images in this email will not be sent, do you still want to send the message?.

    Will this Solution work with Windows Mail also?
