I have a user with Vista, and Outlook 2003 Professional. Outlook has latest updates, but some embedded pictures are not showing (red x) when the email comes in. If or when the user replies or forwards the email, the picture shows up (in the body of the message he is forwarding). Now bear in mind, these are not attachments, but pictures that are embedded in the body of the email. I played with the option to automatically download pictures, but that did not work either. What is also weird is that even from personnel within our own domain, the pictures are not showing. We have a daily flyer that goes out to the company (embedded pics as well), and they show up fine in his email. I forwarded the problematic emails to myself, and they showed up fine. I then forwarded it back to the user, still no joy.
