      Arghhh....no html pictures on email now!!

      All....having a problem now I've switched to sky.com for broadband.

      When I now receive e-mail from anyone the html embedding of pictures is screwed up. I simply get a text version with no pictures within. This used to work fine but now I have to ask everyone to send any pictures or images as attachments. Naff eh?

      I'm using Outlook Express by the way.

      Cool site by thy way!!

      Here's a sample:
      <html>
      <head><title>The Really Big Play.com Sale Up to 80% off</title>
      </head>
      <body>
      <form name="search" method="GET" action="http://www.play.com/Search.aspx">
      <input type="hidden" name="page" value="search">
      <input type="hidden" name="adudisc" value="y">
      <input type="hidden" name="source" value="2007043201">
      <table align="center" border="0"
      ....etc

      Outlook does not show pictures as standard, this is to stop spammers confirming your email address exists by pulling the pictures from their website. I think you can right click on the picture and then click download.

      I am sure you can turn it off in the options, but if a spammer sends you an email with pictures in it, then you have confirmed your email address.

      Go to tools, options and then security, its in there.

      Yes, sensible I'm sure. However, when my family send me e-mails now there are no pictures and no "Right-click here to download..." option. It's simply like an HTML text version of the original mail. Nowhere to right-click.

      I can no longer get any sensible decoded html mail via sky.com....it's all raw text.
