Weird Live Mail problem?

Hi Everyone!

I'm getting E-Mail messages that are supposed to have images in them but the images are blank.

I received 4 messages today from the same sender with images and 3 were OK and on one the images didn't show.

He has tried to send the message that didn't work to me 3 times and it always comes through blank even though when I reply he says the images show.

I also received another message from another sender that was a resend of a message they had sent me that was blank and this one was blank as well.

When I tried to reply to it, I could not type into the reply window.
The cursor showed but the type would not appear when I typed, as if it just wouldn't show what was there.

I've had this happen occasionally from another sender as well.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Try this, Mike
Run Windows Live Mail.
Click on Options (Over on the littleBlue icon, top left - I guess you know that)
Click the Safety options. Then security
Clear the box that says “Block images and other external content in HTML email” and , whilst there, click on the "Show images and external..etc"
Click on Apply to save changes.
Restart Win Live mail after.
