All of a sudden several computers in our office started showing a square with a red X in it instead of a picture in Outlook 2007. We use to be able to see them just fine. I've looked everywhere I can think of in Outlook, IE, Google, and online resources but I still can't find an answer to this one. I'd like to roll out a setting to prevent this with a GPO if possible and I'm assuming it's IE that's blocking it.
We've sent the email message to other people outside of our office running older version of Office and to runs running Vista SP1 wtih Office 2007 SP1 and all of them can see the images just fine. If I highlight the contents of the message and paste it into Word or if I just save the message as an HTML file straight from Outlook, the pictures showup just fine.
Within this message there are some embedded pictures and they show up fine. It looks like the ones getting blocked are on an internal webserver that's hosted on our LAN. The URL in the reference is an external address (i.e. www.blah.com/blah.jpg
) but our internal DNS servers host our external zones. So I can go to www.blah.com
from an office PC here without ever leaving the internal network. SO our firewall's not in play with this one; and like I said... the pictures show just fine as soon as I take the content out of Outlook.
Other posts I've seen on EE and elsewhere seem to point to an IE security setting. But no one seems to know the answer and I've already reset my security settings and made our website a trusted site.
