Hello to everyone. At times, when I receive an email with attachment, there is a small box within a box, and a red diamond shaped thing in the smaller box. This seems to be a placeholder for images or something, but no image ever appears, and I can't open anything either by left or right clicking.
I mostly ignore this, because it usually is part of a "chain" mail thing, complete with zillions of addresses, and I tend to just delete that stuff anyway. But my curiosity is getting the better of me.
By searching the web, I found one discussion that applied, but everyone participating considered the red diamond phenomenon to be strictly a Thunderbird problem. I do use Thunderbird, and would rather fight than switch. Besides, I've heard from people using Outlook Express and/or Outlook, as well as Yahoo and Hotmail, and they've occasionally run into the red diamond also.
Anybody know what's going on with this? Thanks!!:confused:
