Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
The little red boxes with an X in it are not missing graphics.
They indicate that the topic is closed. No more replies may be added.
I am still learning about the forums as well. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

I've been pondering your answer and keep coming up with "why would the program cancel the graphics?"
I'm trying to save an email that has photos tnterpersed with discriptions. when I save it, all I get are the discriptions with little red boxes in place of the photos.

Color me blonde!
I thought that you meant on this web site.
Yes, the little red box with an X in it is a picture or other graphic.
If you click on the box you should be able to see the graphic.
This is a setting in your web browser, or Outlook, that blocks the graphic from showing.
There are two reasons for this;
1) malicious code can be hidden in graphics.
2) The web page or E-mail will load faster if the pictures are not loaded.
You can search the options of your browser for the setting,but I do not recommend that you change it for reason #1.

If the program is Outlook
  • Open Outlook.
  • Select tools
  • Select Options.
  • Select security.
  • Select Change automatic download settings.
For web pages
  • With the IE browser open,
  • Select tools
  • Select Internet options
  • Select Advanced
  • Scroll down to Multimedia
  • Put a check in the box that says show pictures

The show pictures box was already checked. Does this make it more interesting?

Hardware is something that you can kick. Software you can only cuss at!
I will research this, It may take a day to find the right answer.

Hi there,

Does this happen absolutely every site you visit or only some? (i.e. are you able to see any pictures at all?)

Do you have any ad-blocker programs on your computer?

Troy -
The only time the problem occurs is when I try to save an email with graphics and script intergrated. It saves the script and spits out the graphics.
The graphics must also be an attachment. I can save the attachments seperatly if I want to.
