    outlook express+pictures

    Hi all. For the last few days I have been unable to send pics with any messages I send. To be more precise, the pics insert but the recipients receive the "red x" instead. All the messages in my sent folder have the red x, but I sent a test to myself and I now see the pics just fine (I changed nothing), but still all my recipients state they are not getting them.
    I hope this makes sense, strange problem.

    I have been getting e-mails for about 4 days that the pics aren't coming through. The first day, I checked everything, changed nothing and "voila" I can view the pics, but it seems no one else can. As for changes, I haven't changed anything. I did a clean-up last week (like I always do) and got rid of the usual, temp files, cookies, temp int files.

    Hello........

    Have any of the folks that are receiving your e-mails tried to right click on the red X and then select show picture? If so what happens when they do?

    Well egghead, that would be if I have sp1 installed, right?
    I do not, that is a whole different problem for me.
    @Tinker, I never thought of that. Will ask.

    @phishhead, rogers, and I tried outlook, and another e-mail address, but I don't see the difference as now I'm seeing the pic, but everyone else is saying they can't. I just received another e-mail reply, telling me still no go, with the pic right smack in the middle of the e-mail!

    Thanks for all your help everyone! I will have to ask them who they use-I know a few of them are the same as me, I just find it strange that it's 20 other people's problem-not mine. Oh, well, I can live with that.
