why do i get no images on email just a red x

Specs: Windows 7
Why am I just getting an email to my Yahoo email address with no images, just a box in the upper left hand corner of each intended pic with a red X in it? This happened a couple of times before but a long time ago and now just today. What can I do to fix this problem and get the images to show up? Thanks so much.

These images are not attached to the email. That's only links to the images on the internet.
So maybe the email client program is configured, to not automatically download images from the internet, or the email client program is blocked by a running firewall, to not download images from the internet.

At least, this could happen, when the images are no longer available on the internet.

Are you using Yahoo webmail? There might be something you need to click on such as "show images"?

The most likely problem is that the person that sent you the e-mail did a forward to you but didn't forward the images. Happens alot. Contact the person and ask them to resend it and make sure the pics are attached.
