Anyone use Thunderbird for e-mail?

Friend gets the same e-mails we do from a company. One on Wed. and one on Friday. Mine arrives in my Hotmail account and all images are shown. He uses Thunderbird and he gets no images. He gets links to everything.
I have no access to their computer now but is anyone aware of the setting he can change to allow all images to be seen?
I've sent him single photos and they arrive as images.

He sees this:

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Update: I see that you just added examples to the question, which show that it might be related to the third bullet in the article that I referenced, since they are "remote images", which TBird blocks by default.

Showing images is disabled by default for security reasons. When you view an email, the image loads from some server, if it is a spammer, (s)he'll know it's a live email and could further target you.

If it's a trusted email then it's not as much of a concern.
