Images Do Not Display in Email Client

Overview 

Sometimes, the images in an email message may not display for a variety of reasons. The reasons may vary depending on the email client and the configuration of your settings. Even when the images do not display, they still exist somewhere on the platform, but your configuration settings prevent these images from properly displaying. 

The three most common reasons for error are:

  • You are blocking external content in your configuration (email client, machine, or network block)
  • Your SecureTemp folder is "full"
  • You have Word's picture placeholder setting enabled in your email client

For the most part, the most common reason is that images or external content are being blocked, so the first thing to check is to see if the email client is enabled to display images.

This article will show you how to verify image display in your email client.

Instructions

To display images automatically in your inbox:

  1. Select the Mail dropdown on the toolbar
  2. Click Preferences
  3. Click the Viewing button
  4. Make sure you check Display remote images in e-mail
  5. Click Save

Gmail will automatically display images by serving them through their own secure proxy servers. If images do not automatically display, you can manually adjust your settings.

  1. Click the Gear Icon in the top right corner of the page
  2. Select Settings
  3. On the General tab, click Always display external images
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes

If the mail application fails to download an email properly, try to back out to the Inbox and reopen the message.

The mail application limits the amount of content it will download. Large messages sometimes will not automatically download the whole email content.

To view the content of a large email:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the message
  2. Click the Download Full Message button

To display images for individual emails:

  1. Click the My Settings icon
  2. Under Settings on the left, select Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  3. Under Mail on the right-hand side, find the Load Remote Images option
  4. Slide the bar to On

  4. Uncheck the Don't download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items checkbox

Another way to ensure that images download is to ensure that the sender is on your safe sender list.

To add a contact to your safe sender list:

  1. Select Tools > Options
  2. On the Preferences tab, click Junk E-Mail
  3. Select the Safe Senders tab

  2. Click Trust Center
  3. Click the Trust Center Settings button
  4. Uncheck the box next to the Don't download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items option

Internet Explorer has a security setting that, when enabled, prevents Outlook from display images with a secure URL. Images URLs that start with HTTP will display, but not URLs that start with HTTPS.

If Outlook 2007, 2010, or 2013 displays some - but not all - images, you may need to change the setting in your Internet Explorer web browser or desktop software.

To change the setting in Internet Explorer:

  1. Navigate to Tools > Internet Options
  2. Select the Advanced tab
  3. Scroll down to the Security Settings list, then uncheck the Do not save encrypted pages to disk option
  4. Click OK

Before the changes take effect, it may sometimes be necessary to clear the cache and close Outlook. After relaunching Outlook, send yourself another email with an image that did not previously display to test your settings.

  1. Click File
  2. Click Options
