    Recently i have been getting reports from friends and family that any emails that i forward that contain any images/pictures within the email it's self: (ie not an attachment) are not being shown at all. They get a little red cross where the picture should be. These types of emails are generally joke emails that i have received from other people, viewed them ok myself and then forwarded on to other people. This is not just from my sky email but also my wife's as well. I use Sky email in the UK

    Any ideas why this is happening? I have changed nothing in the settings and thought perhaps it might be the computer so tried it on another and still encountered the same problem.
    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Most likely it is their computer blocking images. If you send a test forward to example@EmailQuestions.com we'll be able to see for certain if the problem seems to be with their computer or with the email that's being forwarded.
