By default, Microsoft Outlook 2003 does not download any images in HTML e-mails. This is a good security precaution, but it can be an annoyance if you receive regular HTML e-mails, such as newsletters from trusted sources, because you have to manually right-click on the graphic slots and then download the images in order to read many of these e-mails.
You can change the Outlook 2003 settings so that images are automatically downloaded when you view or open the message. Here's how you do it:
- Click Tools | Options
- Click the Security tab
- Click the Change Automatic Download Settings button
- Uncheck the box Don't Download Pictures Or Other Content Automatically In HTML E-mail.
|Outlook options under the Security tab|
If you'd like to retain some caution, then you can keep the default setting for the box Warn Me Before Downloading Content When Editing, Forwarding, Or Replying To E-mail. If not, then you can uncheck that box as well.
