Outlook Embedded Images don't show, despite unclicking "Don't Show


Dear Experts,

I'm running Outlook 2007 on Windows XP. Outlook won't show embedded images
(like in emailed newsletters). I unclicked the "Don't Download pictures
automatically in HTML email messages or RSS items", but it still won't show
them. Actually, it will show some of the pictures, but it won't show the
graphic/logo items of the newsletters. For all the things it is not showing,
there is an empty square/rectangle. Nor will it show attachments in the
body. Just a square. If I go to right click on the square, the only option
is "copy." There is no option at the top of the message to download images -
it doesn't exist.

Can you think of any reason this is happening, and anything I can do to
start getting embedded images? Thank you very much,

Valerie

I've run into the same problem, does anyone know what the resolution to
this issue is? I haven't seen this behavior on my own machine using my
signature... I'm instead trying to set up a signature for a client, and
we're running into this frustrating problem. Instead of displaying the
images, it provides an absolute path to his local machine and where the
image is stored (file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings... etc).

It appears that at some point the image attachments/embedded images
were stripped from the email.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

I've had this problem for a while but I can't seem to figure out what's going on. When I get get an HTML email that has imbeded images, it won't show these. Even when I enable the "blocked features" it will try to download the images but then I get the red "X" showing that the images doesn't exist.

Here's the interesting part though, if your forwarding the html email or replying then the images will show in the window before sending.

This is happening on two different Exchange servers I administrate so I'm not sure what's happening here as we haven't made any custom configurations on any one of these servers.





This just started happening the last couple of weeks.  My wife is forwarding emails to me with embedded images from her work and all I get is several lines of text such as [CID: image name or id]

She is able to send the messages to others at her work and the images display just fine.  They are not showing up as attachments at all - just the string detailed above. I believe they are using Outlook 2007 at her work.

I have received other emails with embedded images that seem to work just fine.

Any idea what the problem is or how to fix it?




Receiving e-mail with embedded images shows the mail with a red X instead of the images.

Works on my workstation (Windows XP SP3) with Outlook 2003, doesn't work on the server (Windows 2008 R2 64bit running Citrix XenApp 6.5) with Outlook 2003. So it's not a restriction on internet access based on user. I'm using the same account for both. If I access Outlook directly on the server (foregoing Citrix) it also does not work. On our old Citrix environment (Windows 2003 32bit running Citrix Presentation Server 4.5) we can view the mail normally. So it might be a quirk of Windows 2008 R2 somewhere. Windows and Office have been patched to the fixes released in December 2012.

Tried on a server that has Outlook 2010 installed, and it failed on there too. So the version of Outlook can't be a cause.

On the user that reported the problem, we cleaned out the profile (i.e. trashed it). The profile is roaming, so it was recreated upon the next logon of the user. Made no difference. So I'm excluding the profile as the cause.

We had a go with the download settings in Outlook: Outlook: Download pictures automatically without right-click | a Tech-Recipes Tutorial - No change. Besides, if the profile was recreated this is set to the default. It's set to the top three ticks enabled. Any changes to this don't result in changes in the display of the e-mail itself.

Forwarding the e-mail might show the pictures in some cases. Not in ours. Pictures remain undownloaded.

Checked the Internet format settings (Cannot view embedded images in an HTML message using Outlook 2003) - No change, no matter what we alter here.

Next there's a pointer that IE doesn't connect to the Internet properly. Not the case. I start IE8 on the server, and connect to the outside world just fine, through the locally installed TMG client. Even when I physically fill in the proxy data it does not make a difference. We tried a reset for IE too. No difference. IE isn't set to work offline.

Checked the proxy for any errors being reported from the client and user trying to open the e-mail. Proxy reports anything requested comes in properly.

Found Description of the Outlook 2003 hotfix package: April 22, 2008 - a possible hotfix. Tested it. No change. Tried Detect and Repair, which in some cases solved the issue. Also no change.

The OutlookSecureTemp fix was next. I don't see anything saved in there, unless I open attachments which do get saved in here. The folder is local to the server, and is deleted on logoff. The folder is empty by default. Using Process Manager seems to hint at the fact that there can't be anything written to the folder, but then why do attachments get stored there with no trouble? We verified the ACL's on the folder, found them to be okay.

Last thing I found was Outlook 2003 not showing Embedded Images - which hints at a copy-test, and deleting files from a folder. When I copy the red X from the mail and paste it to Word on the server in the same session, the picture is shown properly. Going back to Outlook and changing the preview to a different e-mail and going back makes it even less clear: The picture is now shown! The rest of the pictures isn't tho. When looking in the C:WindowsDownloaded Program Files folder, the only thing in there is an expected desktop.ini. So while this hints at a solution, it isn't one in itself.

About the only thing I can imagine being the cause would be the links to the files. For instance http://www.computable.nl/pcit/img.db?2223468 instead of a real .jpg file.

Me and my colleague have somewhat exhausted our direct ideas to solve this issue. Anyone want to chip with something we can still try?




When I get an email with image files, Outlook
refuses to show them in the body, and removes
all of them "to file: xxx"

Here is all Outlook shows in the message body:

Hello All - Outlook 2002 with SP3 with a Server in backend.

Some of the emails with embedded images not seen.

I have not tried reinstalling office but have changed the mail Format from
HTML to Word and viceversa and nothing.

Ina single email, there might be three embedded images and maybe two of
them just show an X.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Regards,
Angelo




I am having problems with viewing embedded images although my security
settings should allow me to do it. The only way I can view images is to click
the forward or reply buttons they then show in the email. Until a few months
ago, this was not a problem.

I suspect an update is causing the problem but I don't know which it is or
how to correct it. This is effecting my ability to work effectively for
clients, please advise.

I also have a related problem with Outlook for opening attachments but will
send a separate note. That occurred about the same time.

Platform PC / Windows XP Professional / Office/ Outlook 2003.




Outlook 2007 is moving embedded to a file attachment.

This primarily comes from domino email addresses.

But, I am sure it is a setup on my outlook as on webmail and other uses, the
images show up in the body of the email as you would expect.

There must be a setting, and I have searched help, and cannot find how to
stop outlook from doing this... message example here

(Embedded image moved to file: pic21227.jpg)

My outlook is NOT set up to read email as plain text




If I get an email in Outlook - this is the corporate version – where
there’s embedded images within the body of the email, it doesn’t show
the first image until I start to forward the email.
I can open the image and or view it in the reading pane and it doesn’t
show the first image.
The image arrives at the far end and can be seen by the majority of
recipients, though a small number like me can’t see it ?!
If there’s just one image it shows it…?!

We've all compared settings and can't see anything different - apart
from a few small personal differences of course...

Any pointers that I can pass on to my IT dept gratefully received…

TIA

A colleague of mine sends me mails with embedded images in created by
printscreen /ctrl V I can see these just fine in outlook 2003 running on xp
pro, but I cannot see the image in outlook 2007 running on xp pro 64 bit,
not even a small red square or a place holder shows, I know the image is
there because if I send it back to my colleague he can see it.
Any ideas please

Whenever I send HTML mail with embedded images they are received by other
clients as attachments which cannot be read, but the same message to other
outlook users in the same organisation are received ok with no attachments.

Any suggestion?

I don't want my emails being seen as attachments.




Hi all,

Since I use Outlook 2007 I've got problems with embedded images in HTML
messages.
When I send a message, which is made in word 2007 saved as HTML and then
send
by Outlook 2007 with embedded images, the images get lost when opened by an
Outlook 2007 client.

When I send the exact same message to an Outlook 2000, 2002 or 2003 client,
the
message is good including embedded images.
I've allowed the receiving domain and allowed images from the sender in
Outlook 2007,
so I don't think it is an Outlook 2007 security issue.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thnx,

Outlook 2007 :: how to show blocked images within mails?

Just installed office 2007, I've searched and read somewhere that I should
first add the sender to safe senders list to have their images shown, so i
did, if this is correct, are there any ways to retrieved the blocked images
from the earlier received mails? ( those mails before i add the sender to
safe senders list)

anyone pls advise, thanks in advance!




Hello;

I have a user that when he receives an email that has an embedded image all
he gets is a red x where the image should be. If he hits reply or forward
the image shows up in the resulting email. I have unchecked the setting
under Tools|Options|Security|Automatically Download Picture Settings and I
have verified that he is set to use HTML for emails.

The machine is a newer Toshiba M5 with 2 gigs of RAM running XP Pro SP2 and
Office 2003 Enterprise. It is on a domain and the user has local admin
rights.

Any Ideas?
