I think you should have the settings available on the same menu where you choose "Download Pictures" from.

Hello bsharath,

1. Outlook blocks images. Here is how to unblock them. On the Tools menu, click Trust Center > Automatic Download.
Clear the Don't download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items check box.

2. 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!
