One of the main problems with most of the users of Microsoft Outlook Express is it does not download the images by default. Instead of displaying the embedded pictures, it shows a red cross (X) mark in place of pictures. At the top of email message “click her to download pictures” link appears. When you click the link, Outlook Express starts displaying the pictures. Now, a question that must be coming in your mind is why Outlook Express does not by default download pictures. Outlook Express does not by default displays images because the images can be offensive for you. Therefore, it gives you a flexibility to judge that whether you want to view the images or not. If you want to view the images then click the “click her to download pictures” link.

In case, you want Outlook Express to download images by default then you can also configure setting in it. Following steps help you to modify settings in Outlook Express to display images embedded in emails:

1. Start Outlook Express.
2. Select Options in the Tools menu.
3. Select the Security tab.
4. Clear the Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail check box.
5. Click the Apply button.
6. Click the OK button.
7. Restart Outlook

Now, Outlook Express displays images embedded in emails and the “click her to download pictures” link does not appear at the top of the email message containing images.
