pics still being stipped in email

:confused:It seems to be an old subject but, is there a compatability problem between different email providers that they don't send pictures though.
It seems when I get emials from IPhones and Androids or AOL to my Windows Livemail the pictures are all either removed completely or in slideshow view, which is not cool either. Like I said its an old problem and you would think it would be solved by now.... or maybe I missed the anouncment?
