Red X instead of a Graphic

By tbreisch ·
Frequently I see a Red X instead of a graphic...both in internet sites as well as distorted graphice inn the Eudora email I use.
I have tried many corrections, but the problems persist.

Could be a number of things from insufficient system resources to too high security settings to low bandwidth.

hi ya there is several things you could try, you have not stated what you have tried so here goes a couple.
delete your history temp IE files cookies. Restore IE to defaults.
The reason for the red 'x' is that Outlook Express can't find the image on the recipient's computer. To fix this, make sure Outlook Express sends all images together with the message.
To fix broken images in emails written in Outlook Express:
? Select Tools | Options... from the menu in Outlook Express.
? Go to the Send tab.
? Click the HTML Settings... button under Mail Sending Format.
? Make sure Send pictures with messages is checked.
? Click OK.
? Click OK again.
Note: installing Hotbar may turn off the Send pictures with messages feature and thus break some stationery ? but now you know how to re-enable it.
Perform a repair of Internet Explorer.

Have you checked the options which enable or disable downloading of pictures? In IE6 go to Internet Options - Advanced - Multimedia - Show Pictures, and in Firefox check under Tools - Options - Web Features - Load Images.
