red x in emails

I keep getting one users who periodically gets red x in linked pictures in email.  I have tried multiple different approaches, including deleting the shell:cache folder contents, and even moving the folder location through HKEY in regedit to a different folder.

The only thing that seems to fix it is a reboot, but it comes back after a few weeks.  

I have seen this on others but the shell:cache method works for them.  Wondering if there is something that I should look for as a delineating factor for him.

Thanks.

Hi,

What OS and version of Office is in play here?

Maybe post a screenshot of the issue for our clarification.

Outlook is tied directly to internet exploder.  It uses the image cache located in temporary internet files.  

The fix ultimately ends up being deleting your internet explorer files, restoring IE settings back to default.

RESET IE:

At the moment I do not have a screenshot as I fixed it (albeit most likely temporary).  If it does come back i will screen shot it.

I did go to F:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp (this is where we keep the persistent data for our linked clones) and delete those files, is that specifically different than what you are referring choward16980 or is that something different?

Trust me, open IE, go to internet options, delete all your temporary files from the console, then go to the advanced tab and reset the settings and make sure your "Delte all person settings" is checked.
