Since you are receiving pictures from others You are receiving OK.
If they send embedded pictures to others are they receiving them?
for your friends
If you cannot select the Picture command, make sure HTML formatting is turned on by clicking the Format menu in the message window and then clicking Rich Text (HTML). A black dot appears by the command when it is selected.
If message recipients are not able to view your inserted images, on the Tools menu, click Options. Click the Send tab, click HTML Settings, and then make sure that Send pictures with messages is selected. Then resend your message.
To insert a background picture into your message, in the message window, on the Format menu, point to Background, and then click Picture. Click the Browse button to search for the file you want to use.
From a couple of people I am not able to get pictures they send in the body of an email. If they send it via attachment it is fine. If they send them in the body of an email, (not everyone, just a couple of people) I just get a box with a red cross in it.
any ideas please?? I am using Outlook Express, and have XP, and Internet Explorer Browser
