    A user is unable to view images embedded in the body of emails. A red
    "x" appears instead of the image however when she emails that image to
    myself and other users, the image is there. The image is a .bmp and I
    have checked the security settings on the Outlook client and even
    uninstalled Outlook 2003 and reinstalled.

    I had the same problem and could not find the solution. A reinstall did
    fix it for me [a reinstall of WINDOWS, that is].

    I also did not have the security settings set to hide graphics.

    Interestingly (and you should try this), if I looked at the E-Mail in
    "sent mail", the red X was present (mind you, this was in an E-Mail that
    I myself composed and sent, and it was a JPEG). If I then FORWARDED the
    E-Mail, the image appeared when I was forwarding it. Once it was
    forwarded, if I then looked at either message in my sent mail folder ...
    I was back to the red X.

    Unfortunately, I never found the problem. But reinstalling WINDOWS did
    fix it. Not a good or easy solution, however.
