Hi Stardotstar,
That is a function of recipient's web browser and active x. Have user upgrade to latest version of browser, and check security settings!

Should all active x settings be enabled?

Also, if they are running latest and reset security to low do they need to reboot?  do the need to have the mail resent?

Shouldn't need to have the mail resent, I don't believe, but closing outlook and coming back in is not a bad idea!! Yes to the Active X!

When the sender clicks on forward, the graphics go away!

Recipient never receives them.

Oh my, one more thing to check then. What format does sender use to  "send" ?..is it HTML, rich text, plain text? TO verify, check Tools, Options, mail format tab and see which format is chosen. That will also make a difference!

I generally don't have any issues receiving any emails, so I believe  the proble is on his machine.  He uses Outlook.

Waiting for more info on whether he is using HTML/Plain Text/Rich Text.

Will advise as soon as I know.
