Outlook won't open some images (desktop app or online)

For the last week or so, about 1/4 of emails that I get that have photos in them, won't display the photos. Instead I get a box with a red X in it and the message:

The linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Verify that the link points to the correct file and location.

Other people at my company aren't having this problem. Emails go to all of us but only I have the images blocked.

The problem doesn't just occur in the desktop app version of Outlook. If I log in to Outlook online and pull up the emails, the images are blocked there, too. But if I open the same emails on my iPhone (with the iPhone mail app, not Outlook), the images are fine.

Any suggestions?
