    Hello,

    I receive some HTML newsletters everyday that contains graphics (header,
    section headers, etc.). Every day, Entourage refuses to download the
    pictures. I've already marked these as a safe domains and have marked these emails as 'not junk.' Is there any way I can make Entourage automatically download pics from certain emails? Thanks,

    Luis

    Yep.

    Entourage menu-->Mail & News Preferences-->click Read tab-->under HTML make sure both boxes are checked.

    At least that's how Entourage X works. Should be the same in 2004.

    The problem is that we're not talking about attached pics (for which I think you had the solution) but about linked pics that load from the server when the msg is viewed. As you probably know, spammers sometimes use these to make sure msgs are viewed, and MS is preventing these from loading "to protect your privacy." But I get regular emails from senders I trust and I don't want to have to click to view the pics every single time.

    It may be there's no way around it...it's just frustrating to be treated like a child by software. Thanks.

    They have to be in your address book

    The sender must be in your address book, thats the only way I have found in which images load automatically

    From a MS MVP

    This may be a solution...will let you know tomorrow:

    A new security feature in Entourage 2004 blocks the display of pictures (and
    other linked mail content) hosted on remote sites. Images can be loaded for
    individual messages by clicking on the ‘Download Pictures’ link in the
    yellow message status bar. This was a huge feature request from users that
    found the all embracing ‘All Pictures’ or ‘No Pictures’ too limiting.

    There is a setting in the security section of the preferences to
    automatically download pictures from recipients who are in your address
    book. That should suffice for most users. If you really want to download all
    images from all sources, you can put ".com", ".net", ".org" etc to your list
    of safe domains in the Junk Mail Protection dialog. Then, images from all
    untrustworthy sources will be downloaded.
