    We have a html mail coming from an external client. The mail contains both

    red X crosses as well as images which are not getting displayed(with just

    blank boxes, these are different from the red x crosses).

    When I right click on the red x crosses and download pictures, the pictures

    show up for the x crosses, but the blank images are still blank. The same

    happens in OWA too. But, the weird thing is, when the client sends the same

    mail to a hotmail/gmail account, it appears fine after clicking link to

    download pictures. No changes were made to IE settings for the mail to be

    displayed properly in hotmail/gmail.

    Why will Outlook 2003 and OWA have problems and please let me know any

    possible things which can be tried?

    What version & SP of Exchange?

    What spam filtering software do you use?

    We are using Exchange 2007 SP1 and Websense Hosted Email Security

    (MailControl) as our spam filtering software.

    I'm sorry, I lost track of this thread...late reply. Can you try bypassing

    Websense as a test?

    Thanks for the help.

    It was the html filter which was causing it.

    We got it fixed after speaking to Websense.
