images won't display from IIS 7 when using full URL path

Hi all,
When I create an email newsletter in basic HTML, the browser won't download the images from the webserver.  as in:  <img name="leftslvr" src="" width="21" height="1" border="0" alt="">
I've looked at the security setting and IUSR has read access and the image displays (sometimes) when I type in the direct URL in the browser (but not always).  Very very strange.  IE, NS & FireFox all behave similarly, so it is IIS 7 (running on W2K3 ) that is preventing this.  
How do I change IIS to allow this?

Who is Participating?
email newsletter in the browser?
Do you mean your email has an attachment which is an html page and when opened the images don't show?
Maybe Outlook/Outlook Express/Whatever is running the email in a non-trusted zone or is not set to auto download images.

If so then this is out of your control.
Try putting a link in your newsletter and inviting them to your site to read the html version of the newsletter.
