Outlook Image Display Problems

Outlook - images in email sent or received often come through blank with the box in the upper left hand corner with a red X.  Right clicking on the box does not give me any option to display the image.  However, when I respond to the email received or forward the email I sent, the image appears.

    Here are other reasons why Red X shows instead of pictures

    Check the email format.
    Image could be with the email or reference on a link
    If using Outlook 2003, images may be blocked.
