Re: Can not see images in email

The last few times I saw something like this, the advice was to clear your browser history. or try a different browser.  Does that help?

Re: Can not see images in email

Clear your browser cache and cookies (just the VM ones if you can find them). Usually helps with this. Also make sure that in web mail settings you have got the image options properly set to display images.

Re: Can not see images in email

I think HowardML means this part of the settings - click the three line icon:

Then choose the email line item on this screen where you can select different settings:

Re: Can not see images in email

Indeed I do. You will find the image setting you want under E-mail (you don't need to go further down the list). Look for "Format" and make sure it is set to allow HTML and plain text images.

Hi Howard

It was already set to HTML and plain text?

Re: Can not see images in email

Then clear your browser cache and cookies. Both MissPasko and I have mentioned this. If you need help with that Google for it because different browsers do it differently.

Re: Can not see images in email

VM web mail may be blocking the images for your security. When you open the mail to view you'll find a button at the top to allow you to view images. We never recommend using the settings to change this to allow all images to display because that is a way in for scammers and hijackers.
