Hi intelogent,
It looks like Outlook have blocked the images out of security reasons. Rightclick one of the crossed out pics and choose to download pictures or if you wanna change it permanently, look under Tools > Options > Security > Change Automatic Download Settings

Hello intelogent,

1. Outlook blocks images. Here is how to unblock them. Make sure all the options allow images.

2. By default, Outlook 2003 blocks all HTML content that is referenced by an external location.  Here is how to turn if off

3. The Outlook folder where images open may be full. Clear the files from Outlook cache folder OLKxx.  This folder is difficult to access. Here is a way to access the folder and files

In Vista, the Secure Temp folder is located at C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\X30MWG3N

Hope this helps!
