This was driving me nuts,

Off topic..
Outlook not showing images in Emails.
so I thought I would just do a quick post.
https://www.slipstick.com/problems/pict ... -messages/

In my case it was this:
In IE go to Internet Options-Advanced; look under Security for Do not save encrypted files to disk.

I thought but I'm not using IE<<wrong.. :eek:

Regards
M. Gregg

Hi, Microsoft strikes again. I have something go wrong about every 6-8 weeks because of something they fixed. Right now in Hotmail inside of Outlook the plain background I had has changed into some landscape image. Not my doing. On your problem though you might start to go through the browser settings and see if there is something relating to embedded images. Anti virus software can sometimes do this as well. What browser are you using...I use Firefox.

Good listening
Bruce

I actually browse this site successfully with:
- Firefox
- Pale Moon
- Opera
- Vivaldi

Both Win7 and Linux.

Mega plugins loaded on them and this site is stable in all :thumbsup:

Well I thought outlook used the preferred browser ie firefox or whatever you selected as default.
However I think images in outlook are linked to internet explorer so I have corrected the fault which was in the settings in internet explorer.
I don't use Internet explorer as my browser, however that didn't change the fact that outlook does use it as default.
Even in Win 10 which has a default using Edge Outlook still uses IE.

To my knowledge there is no way to select which browser works with outlook images its locked to internet explorer..

Does Outlook allow plugins?
I know with Thunderbird, you can get a doodad called "Launchy", which allows you to set a preferred set of programs for various media.

Hi,

I used to use Linux SUse, Red hat, Mint, Ubuntu.
I had a new distro nearly every week for a while and eventually started using Puppy.. :D
This was way back from the 80's. However because of the job I do I am limited to Microsoft products and every new version of Orifice and Windows mutation inflicted on mankind>>now womankind the ruling classes :D
So I have used Opera and thunderbird etc but my hands are tied until I manage to escape the world of work.
I could use Apple but I get by with what is functional at the moment.
The time is not far away when people will have to have a biologically retrofitted computer linked to the company in the not to distant future.
You will be upgraded and your consciousness to will be linked to the hive mind..resistance is definitely futile retire as fast as possible.. :D
However that will be outlawed to prevent escape!

Regards
M. Gregg

LOL,

Thank's for the thought, but I already have a stack of used and retired laptops.
I just use a personal PC for essentials..perhaps I'm a luddite.. :D
At work everywhere I go people keep putting PC's in my hand and every chance I get I leave them on the desk as I leave the office.

Regards
M. Gregg

As a drift OT, I have an infamous Acer One netbook as one of the many comps at my side. Was thinking of Puppy as LMDE2 (even stripped down and XFCE as the GUI) is too much for the dang Atom processor with the ram it has (it came with XP).

How do you like Puppy? :idea:

I used quite a few versions of puppy,

It is brilliant! very small, very fast, I used muppy, puppy, and the Slacko pup version.
Its not quite as versatile as a full distro but it has a feel similar to SUse which I like, if you have a supported wireless card WIFI is really easy to get working. Wired is click and connect.
I have also run it off a USB stick on many occasions. You can open windows files (read/write) and partitions.
I dual booted with Grub and partitioned the drive with G parted.
Puppy played DVDs with no problems and I did play with wine, however I have probably forgotten most of it. I modified the task bar and had shiny logos with paw pads and nice multi screen selection.. :D Different icons and desktop backgrounds it easy to play with and good fun.

Its been a while since I played about so its probably better than when I used it. I did play with Ubuntu many people seem to like it but its not my kind of system.

I notice they have Tharpup running Ubuntu, I have run Tarpup in the past and that was also very good!

Regards
M. Gregg
