That can happen when people imbed pics into the email text and dont do it right. Tell them to attach the pics instead of imbedding them and they should be ok
In the beginning there was the command line.

See if the following MS support article helps:

Image may not appear in message received with Outlook Express or Outlook

or this one:
Images are blocked when you open an e-mail message in Outlook Express on a Windows XP Service Pack 2-based computer

or this one:
OLEXP: Image May Not Appear in Message Sent with Outlook Express

or this:
Unblock image downloads in Outlook
