I have AOL pay version and I haven't had a red x in a long time.
A few things to check.
In AOL Toolbar click - Settings - Mail Setting in the Index
- Check mark in the Advance Tab - retain all embedded images in mail -
In the General Tab, uncheck - Hide images and disable links.....
CLICK SAVE

I've read different things. One was update your java and remove any older java that you have in -
Control Panel - Add and Remove Hardware.
Go here and click on the words (do I have java)
http://java.com/en/download/downloa...

Another thing was - Setting on your AOL Toolbar - Internet Web Options - Never Compress Graphics -
Save.

Others reasons explained at these 2 websites.

I have found that if I open Outlook Express I can see the pictures.
Open Outlook Express - Tools - Options - Security Tab - Un Check Block Images and other external content

If Internet service other than AOL send picture they may or may not show up. If they don't show in AOL
they probably will show in Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail.
