    What causes the empty frame with a little white box and a red x inside.
    This happens where a picture use to be but will no longer show the picture.
    What kind of adjustments must I make?

    This will be MS IE , one of any of several versions then?

    Maybe it's your mail client, on some versions of Windows before or after
    installing some app or service pack?
    Instead of one of the URLs you usually use try,

    Searched in 24hoursupport.helpdesk
    209 results for little red x

    Or look for the MS support articles, often mentioned in the Mike posts
    49 results for little red x mike

    Try a different browser.

    Are you referring to your Browser or Email client? You may find your
    answer at the following link if it's a problem with Outlook Express: (safe link)

    Good Luck

    Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Internet Options. Click the "Advanced" tab, Scroll down
    to "Multimedia", check "Show pictures", and uncheck "Show image download
    placeholders". Click "apply", "OK"

    Now click the "General" tab, Under "Temporary Internet Files", click the "Delete Files" button,
    check the box, "Delete all offline content", "OK". After it finishes, click the "Settings"
    button and lower the amount of disk space to use to 20 Meg. Click "OK", "Apply". That will
    increase your hard drive space by how much was in that folder. I've seen it well over a gig.
    Folders that big are prone to crosslinked files. Clear it weekly, or sooner, especially if IE
    starts acting funny.

    Also click the "Advanced" tab, scroll down to "Security", and check the box, "Empty Temporary
    Internet Files folder when browser is closed", click "Apply", "OK"

    Make sure that the sender has 'Send pictures with messages'
    set in Tools, Options, Send, HTML Settings.

    Make sure that the full path to the image/s are correct
    in the message source (View / Source).

    Run Outlook Express; click Tools, Options, "Security" tab.
    Uncheck the box, "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a
    virus" and Uncheck the box, "Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail."
    Click "Apply", "OK"
