Outlook Express 6 images are not shown

When I read messages with Outlook Express 6, some of the messages shows the images and some of the messages shows a little box with a red "x" in place of the image.

Right clicking on the checkbox gives only 4 options, form which 3 are grayed out.

My OS is Windows 2006 (XP 2).

Can anybody help me with this problem?

Open OE, go to tools, options, security and uncheck the boxes about not allowing attachments or pictures.

The checkboxes in OE Security about blocking images are already unchecked.
Also, the settings in Internet Explorer are allowing images as OE depends on the settings of Internet Explorer.

The problem seems to be somewhere else.
