    There should be a show pictures button at the top of the email. If you click that, you should see pictures.

    I also haven't had a problem receiving pictures either. Both work just great.

    I am having this issue on my Gmail mobile also. On most emails it just shows the placeholder for the picture and not the actual photo. On a couple of them it had the "Show Pictures" button but it didn't allow them to show either. It's mostly forwards of funny emails sent to me. Emails that I have received from a sender that personally attaches photos usually show up with no issues.

    Exactly the same, a place holder with a "blue ?" Not on all, and no "show picture" button. I believe it's just forwards.

    I started a post about this exact problem. Even if I push the show picture button, all I get is a little question mark where the picture should be....but on my computer, they are there.

    same here, I get a small blue question mark where the pictures are embedded.. Some do have the "show pictures" button, some do not.

    Quite strange.... GMAIL is the only email service I can get to actually VIEW pictures attached to individual email. Hotmail and YMAIL nada.

    I had pictures appear automatically in my Gmail until this morning. Now they appear on the Droid as a paperclip and gives me the option to download or preview. Up until today the image appeared without any action on my part. Images still appear in the message on my PC. I wonder if google made a change last night........

    I also have this issue. I posted a question about it on the 10th or so, but no one ever responded. I just looked at a problem email and still cannot display the pics. No show pictures button either. And yes, it is usually on funny emails with many forwards.

    No clue, but either way, it's quite... frustrating.

    no pics in email on droid

    i was looking through all my apps and there is another email app not gmail so i tried it the icon is just an envelope with a yellow piece of paper going in and an @ symbol. I put my gmail acct. info in and it retrieved the mails and had no problems getting the pics in the emails to show....I don't think i downloaded the app i think it was always there i was just using the gmail one...Check and see and let me know........

    I will add myself as in the list with the same problem. I sent an email to motorola and the response was a joke. This is frustrating. If I attach them then they show up but if I embed them inline I get the blue ?. If I get embeded pictures from a advertisement email they show up.
