Windows 7: No images showing in Windows Live Mail

No images showing in Windows Live Mail

I had a problem with Windows Live Mail not working and had to reinstall it and I have just managed to get it up and running again with one exception. Emails that contain images or photographs only show text, no images! Any idea why this would be?


Just to clarify the above I'm using Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3528.0331)

I have went into Options, Safety Options, Security and removed the checkmark from, 'Block images and other external content in HTML email.' I have left the checkmark in the box below, 'Show images and external content sent from email addresses in my safe senders list.' I have even tried rebooting to see if that made a difference but it didn't. Everything was working fine last week but since I reinstalled it I've had no images. Any ideas what I could do?

Hello Gozoman now I was under the impression that WLM was dumped quite while ago as it was out here anyway. I have had to use Outlook since then so how come you can still install it??

It did stop working but ONLY if you use Windows Live Mail 2012 (the PC email program) with a Microsoft email service such as Hotmail, Live, or outlook.com. If you use Windows Live Mail 2012 with any other email service – for example, if you have a BT, Virgin, Comcast, Yahoo, Gmail or other email address or indeed Sky that I use– then you don’t need to change anything. You are not affected. The change does not concern you. It's still possible to download the complete Essentials suite as I did and install it or part of it.

Can I just tell anyone with a similar problem who delets this update not to panic afterwards. The usual message comes up saying that windows must restart. Then you get again the normal message that Windows is configuring and you expect this to take 3 or 4 minutes. It doesn't, it takes hours so please be patient and don't think it has screwed up. Once again thanks for the help. Time to back everything up to my external hard drive now that it's all sorted out.
