    Default Outlook problem

    Outlook 2010.
    Not displaying pics, and links?
    Tried all the usual fixes - inc what googling advised as well) and still nothing.

    Last time she installed it, those fixes worked, we are at a loss as to why it won't this time.
    Any ideas?

    Thats pretty much standard for Outlook2010 , default security setting
    With my Outlook 2010, simply just right click on the blocked pics/links & click 'download pictures'

    1st response - and being honest - couldn't be stuffed rewriting everything out again earlier

    OH and did say hope you were feeling better after your fall the other day.

    As 1101 posted:Forum keeps resetting & replies disappear

    For example have you recreated the user profile in both Outlook or windows ?

    That comment ( the windows part- Outlook profile is basic stuff) came from reading this post, several good suggestions and one that for some god knows why worked. 2110020-outlook-2010-not-displaying-images

    Assuming you have tried the most obvious fix for the links - change the default browser back to Internet Explorer - If you have chrome installed that can really fowl up Outlook. ( gotta ask)

    BUT one comment relating to the original post
    Tried all the usual fixes
    That's really vague, Usual fixes - how many is that and which ones, there are plenty of suggestions and certain not all have been tried. That's right up there with customers comments {insert person} Knows all about computers but they cant fix it - and I feel like saying so why are you calling me if they know everything.

    This always makes me smile

    Because I couldn't be bothered typing them all out. Still can't.

    All the go into various settings in Outlook, adjust them, tick boxes, security stuff - you know the ones. And the registry fixes. And even run through the office install again and check all the extras there as will, in case something was affecting it from that.

    Trust Center Settings,
    Show picture placeholders


    all those sort of thing....

    The fall.....not really, CT scan tomorrow and I will find out wth I did to the skull by ear.
    Chin, it's meant to be not swollen now according to Dr Google but nah, I still have this yellow witch chin thing. Bit like a wolf snout poking out.

    Very lumpy. Pity it's not Halloween.

    Probably not the most "helpful" reply but Office 2010 is coming up to 10 years old...later releases are far better... maybe she should consider an upgrade?

    I already suggested she use Thunderbird but no.
    as to upgrading MS, she isn't upgrading any of it, it's the last one, OS and Office, then she's going free ones.

    Personal y I wouldn't use thunderbird these days unless someone paid me to. Its got WAY to many problems, had MANY customers who used thunderbird and gmail plays up AGAIN when google muck about with the security settings.

    For free email - What I have been using is EMclient, https://www.emclient.com/ Its simple in design but has all the settings if anything needs to be altered.

    it's the last one, OS and Office, then she's going free ones.
    That's something that has not been mentioned earlier -- Reading between the lines the OS (which has not been mentioned) and programs are out of date and old, no longer supported --- Simple piece of missing info that could save hours of wasted time.

    Damn hate it when only bits of info is given.

    Probably not the most "helpful" reply but Office 2010 is coming up to 10 years old...later releases are far better... maybe she should consider an upgrade?
    It is actually helpful, as many programs are now getting to old, and their security is not good enough in today's Internet.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Security? Ah yes, the old updates make you safe on the net theory.
    She doesn't and hasn't ever had any security issues.

    And I am not and can not force her to change to a newer version of Windows or Office.
    Telling people to use a different program to solve an issue isn't a solution.

    Never mind, I'll get her to bring it next week when we up in Auckland and sort it, if I could see it I could figure it out, it's just so long since I have messed with Outlook (since Southland).
