Gmail display nonsecure items/ images.

Posted on 2010-08-25
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I mistakenly clicked a prompt instructing to only load secure items/images in an incoming gmaill. I actually did want to load the non secure items/images. Is there a way I can view these after instructing not to load.

Also it was a news letter I subscribe to, and now all emails from this account no longer prompt me asking to display images. And all non secure items are not displayed. How do I undo this?

I had tried this and it appeared to not work.

I think simply applying them wasn't quite enough. I had to also close and restart IE and everything is back to normal.
