The images on the incoming mails received by Outlook 2007 were all black out.

I was told that it is a default setting by MS Outlook 2007 and there is no
way to display any embedded images in any email received.

Can someone tell me if there is any solution at all?.

Thanks!

Brian

The embedded image did appear on the webmail of my IP Server but on Outlook
2007, the entire image was just black out.

Some web discussion group said this is because Microsoft has removed the
image rendering from Outlook 2007 but there any way to make this image
rendering possible.

I don't see the bar or the red cross.

The image simply black out on Outlook 2007. I can see the image on the
webmail via Firefox.

I don't know why are you so sure that it is not true. Are you from
Microsoft. I have gone thru at least 20 postings on the web relating to this
problem and they all came up with the same answer that Microsoft has removed
some html image rendering capabilities from Outlook 2007 for security reason.
I am simply looking for a way to unlock this.

100% sure. There are some HTML rendering capabilities removed indeed, but
they have nothing to do with displaying inline pictures.
Can you post a screenshot of your issue?

I was following this discussion and did not see the post of an example. I'm
having the same problem and can can't understand why I should have to pay for
a program that enables me to see pictures that come embedded in emails. I
would just like my Outlook to work properly. I'll try to copy and paste an
example from my Inbox. I don't see images just a plain white box with black
borders.

I'm unable to copy and paste the shot. I'm going to email it to Brian at
Brian@discussions.microsoft.com .

Thanks- Kathy

In the attached Image you can see the problem.

I'am a software developer and send the mail by using the Microsoft .Net Framework.

gmx webmail shows the embedded image without any problems. but outlook 2007 does not show the image. My customer want me to add the images for the newsletter directly to the mail. Now i have the problem that most of the receipts (including my customer) could not view the images.

can anybody point me to the respnsible security setting?

The message above the mail only appears for images, that must be downloaded. For embedded images the bar will not shown.

The black box will be show instead of the read cross, when you enable an option in the editor options menue. In german ist is called "Platzhalter für Grafiken anzeigen". In my screenshot it is not enabled.

I am having the same issues. All of the setting in Outlook 07 are set to
allow these images to be downloaded, but I still do not get to view some
messages as well as not having the option at the top of the reading pane to
allow me to download them. This is realy getting old. Why does it display
some emails as HTML with pics and headers, but not others when I disabled the
options all together? Seems like a typical Microsoft issue. I have missed
important things in emails do to this issue and have had it. I think i am
going back to an older version of office if this is not fixed among other
things.

I'm having the same issue. I gather from the posts in this string that there
is no solution to this problem but to use another program!! Microsoft needs
to get things figures out--or my next computer is a Mac.

I don't recall seeing this in the thread but the only way I have been able to see embedded images Outlook 2007 is:

1) Open the Email
2) On the Menu of the opened EMail, click "OTHER ACTION"
3) Click "VIEW IN BROWSER"

IE will launch and display the email, including the pictures.

I have been having this problem for about one month.

Before that time I had no problem viewing embedded pictures in my Outlook 2007 emails.

Was there a recent Microsoft update that caused this problem to occur?

I can't believe that only option we have is:

In order to view the pictures in email that everytime I have I have to open the email- choose Other Actions- View in Browser.

I appreciate this advice because I have been pulling my hair out- but there has to be a way to fix this problem instead of using a work-a-around!!!!

Have you "MANUALLY" deleted your temporary internet folders lately?
You may also want to be sure to periodically delete your temporary internet
files "MANLUALLY" as doing this through explorer/tools/Internet Options/
Delete Browsing History/ doesn't work!!!!!!!!!

click on link below to find your operating system:
http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/securetemp.htm AND
http://www.slipstick.com/problems/redx.asp

When temporary internet folder gets "full" you may have problems opening
email attachments or embedded images won't display. If you open image
attachments in Windows Photo or Image viewer and click next, you may see old
images you thought you deleted. Delete the files in the folder to fix.

When you open attachments on email directly from Outlook, a copy is written
to a temporary folder on your hard drive. This is so that the virus scanner
can check it before it is opened. The folder Outlook uses is under the temp
internet folders. This offers more security as only your user account and the
computer administrator account can view the files under this folder. The only
way to avoid "losing" attachments in this well hidden folder is to save them
to your hard drive, before opening. Few people do this (myself included).

Do you see just empty white boxes where the images were supposed to be? If
you do, try this solution. It is the Show Picture Placeholders option.
The description for it says "Display an empty box in place of each graphic
in the document to improve scrolling performance"

To disable this option, do the following:

Create a New email, click the Office Button in the top left, choose the
Editor Options button at the bottom right, select Advanced, scroll down to
the "Display email content" section and make sure there is no tick next to
the "Show Picture Placeholders" option.

Hope one of these solutions works for you!

Hi Brian-

Not sure if you discovered a solution to this or not, but the same thing happened to me and I finally discovered one.

Try this:

If it worked after starting Outlook by going to
START>RUN>Outlook.exe /cleanprofile (you will have to make a new named profile for your outlook and it will reset up outlook but this is not a big deal- you will not loose your old outlook profile or any of your messages.)

Then after /cleanprofile has already done its job, all you need to do now is close Outlook and open it you normally would.

You won't notice that it has worked until you receive the next message with embedded pictures in it though. I thought it didn't work right away. I didn't notice until the next day because I did not receive any new emails with pictures until the next day.

Good Luck!

Melissa Razz
