Anyone knows why I cannot forward any emails which already contains a picture or graphics (like a cartoon figure) ??   I receive them okay but if I forward them, the receiving end only sees a blank square with a tiny box with a Red “X”.

All text goes okay.  All attachments go okay.  All links are going fine.

It does it whether I am using Firefox 3.5.2 or IE 7.   Any ideas? Frown

Your e-mail is probably being blocked by the receiving ends e-mail service. Tell them to add you to the safe list. Otherwise if they can't see the image they can always download it and then see it because the image is just another attachment and nothing more.

Thx for input Ashraf. 

Forgot to mention that when I send this same email with the pictures to myself, the blank squares with the red “X” is what I receive.   So it doesn't only happen to my recipients but also when I get my own “send to”.  Confused

Strange.   Seems like others have this identical symptom with their emails too.

Thanks for your reply.

Did you sort out this problem? If not what firewall and email client are you using?

Are you using McAfee SiteAdvisor, if so disable it and see if that works.

It seems that things are back to normal on it's own.  I did not do or change a thing.

Now I seem to be able to forward pictures again.  Very strange!  Hope this problem does not return to haunt us again!!   Thanks for all your inputs.  Weird……
