Its the gmail app for me also .I will check what kind of pictures they are.
I can go to the browser and see the pictures, but it shouldn't be that way.
If there are certain file-types not supported, or a max file size for pics, that'd be nice to know...
The last ones I had were JPG images. All I get is a blue box with a question mark inside. There is now way to download or preview it. It happens all the time. Maybe it has something to do with forwarded emails. There's other post on here with the same issue. I'm hope the more we talk about it, maybe it will get resolved.
if you're getting blue boxes with question marks, the images are embedded into the email, which is not support by either email app on the phone. there are a few threads that cover this (search embedded images).
attached images will come across fine. embedded will not. i've suspected that google left this out to save space in emails.
an email with html tags to a hosted image will work, however, since they don't add to the size of the email.
the only way around viewing embedded images in emails is to view the email in the online version.
Thanks I will search that. I didn't know they were called embedded images. That's the only thing I miss about my old palm pre from sprint. I guess the pre had to have a positive to it.
there are probably some starred issues over on the google forum about this (in fact, i know there are, i just don't have links). it's kind of bogus, but i can understand the need to save space.
a better solution would have been for email storage to have existed on the SD card. or at least temporary attachment storage.
