Instead of picture I see only a small embeded red cross

Dear Experts,
resently I pasted a small screenshot to an email message. The picture was shown. No problem. But when I wanted to past there a second screenshot I got the small red cross instead.
Looks like a space problem....if yes why and where to adjust?

thanks
Nils

Greetings, Petersburg1.

I don't believe this is a space issue.  That small red X is a sign that Outlook couldn't find the image to display.  

Cheers!

Greetings, Petersburg1 !

Are you viewing the email in Outlook or Outlook Express?  Make sure viewing image in Options menu is selected

Red X means image is blocked. See if one of these methods to unblock image will help you

From the link that I posted above

1. Hide/Show all blocked images in the message

    * Click the InfoBar (InfoBar: Banner near the top of an open e-mail message, appointment, contact, or task. Tells you if a message has been replied to or forwarded, along with the online status of a contact who is using Instant Messaging, and so on.) at the top of the message, and then click Download Pictures.

Outlook Bar

Notes

    * If you want the message to show the images the next time you open the message, save the message.
    * To change the default so that Outlook doesn't block images in all messages, click Change Automatic Download Settings, and then clear the Don't download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail check box.

2. Hide/Change the default so that Outlook doesn't block images in all messages

   1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
   2. Click the Security tab.
   3. Under Download Pictures, click Change Automatic Download Settings.
   4. Clear the Don't download pictures or other content automatically in HTML e-mail check box.

Note  In Outlook, picture attachments cannot be displayed in line in a message body the way they can in Outlook Express.

Dear War1
First link you send is for Outlook Express. I'm using MS Outlook 2003. Second link concerns pictures which are send with an email I have received. In my case all this does not help...

However, thanks a lot for all your help.

No solution no points? That is also hard. What shall I do?

thanks
Nils

Nils, did you look at the second link that I posted?  It is for troubleshooting images in Outlook 2003
