    Before everyone says....hit the "show pictures" button...here me out. This is only occuring from other people that have embedded the images in their emails "in outlook it would be insert image". Not talking about the companies that send you emails, or images hosted on another server. With all those I get the "Show pictures" button. Someone just posted this issue in the general discussion so I tried it myself. I inserted (not attached) and image and sent it to myself. Regular jpg, but I just got a box with a small question mark and no option to show picture.

    This really bites...

    Same issue here. Only article I found that was anything like this was for the iPhone & said the sender had to be "trusted". Meaning, you had to select "Always Display images from this user" on a PC before it would work. I did this & still am having these issues.

    I also have this problem and would like to know what the real solution is... Is there someone we can ask at Google or Motorola or Verizon (I doubt that) that actually might know the cause and solution of this problem... I bet the I phone does not do this...

    This may actually have something to do with Outlook and if the e-mail is sent in html format or Rich Text format... But I don't think so... something to consider.

    Fix?

    So has anyone figured out why this problem exists? I can view the images fine when I go to GMail through the browser on my Droid.

    I've been complaining about this also. I Wish google would listen. You wouldn't think it would be hard to fix. Look what those developers can do. I Wish they would fix it since google wont.

    No, but ironically, my HTC Incredible stock email app (not gmail) will show the images. It loads them as an html link and put them in the body like they should be.

    Get the K9 mail app from the market (free) and set it up to be your Gmail email app. It will display images and much more.

    Interesting idea. How is email delivery? Can you set it up using IMAP so it works like the stock gmail app?

    I have 4 imap accounts including gmail. Using K9 It's flawless. Got your reply over K9 using it, not gmail. Love it.

    Nice. The only thing I would miss is the threaded gmail conversations. It really cleans up the inbox.

    Threading in Gmail is useless to me as it does not auto expand threaded conversations and it’s difficult to see the conversation except for the sender. I believe that K9 will implement threading as it’s on their list of enhancements to be done.

    K-9 does NOT put images sent from normal users into the body of the email. It puts them at the bottom of the email. Not talking about emails from businesses etc. Believe me, it does not put them in the body when a normal user inserts them into the body on their side. This is only with Gmail though.

    Again...before you say yes it does, it doesn't. Send me a pm with your email and I can easily show you.

    That being said, what the HTC Incredible stock email does is take those images, puts them in another folder and links the images from the body to the images in that folder.

    ** On a side note, I really like K-9 and have used it for some time including downloading unreleased versions and trying them out.

    You are correct. Because I use the combined inbox in the latest build of K9 I may have seen an email from another account, but Gmail images are attachments as you say.

    Unfortunately I hate being right in this case. I don't like that google has not addressed this well known issue, but at the same time, I think K-9 could do what the HTC Incredible stock did.
