Eudora Won't Display Graphics/Images in Incoming Mail

  1. Default Eudora Won't Display Graphics/Images in Incoming Mail

    I have version 7.1.0.9 Paid Mode.

    All of a sudden I've noticed that images within incoming mail do not
    display; there's a small box with an "x" within it at the upper left
    corner of the blank display area.

    As well, when I move my mouse curser to a URL within a message, it is
    immediately accompanied by a circular cross-out symbol. Clicking onto
    the URL will bring it up in my browser, however.

    Can anyone provide any help?

    TIA!

    Vista? Internet Explorer 7?

    For each "all of a sudden" case, I always suggest searching for
    the answer to "what else just changed," for every change has a cause,
    and Eudora 7.1 itself hasn't changed at all for two years

    John:

    I read in a post on the Eudora Forums that if Quicktime was disabled,
    that Eudora would not display images. Sure enough, when I tried to
    pull up my Quicktime 7.5.5 it would not completely come up! The
    Quicktime opening dialog box simply stated "loading", but just stayed
    that way. The application would still work; I could bring up video
    files and run 'em, but apparently there's something preventing it from
    coming up completely. I've tried removing and re-installing, but the
    problem with Quicktime persists. I may try to uninstall Quicktime
    again by using the uninstall option that's available in the Quicktime
    programs selection list in Windows vice the Add/Remove icon in Control
    Panel, since I've read that Control Panel does not completely remove
    the Quicktime files that way.

    In the meantime, Is there any way I can get Eudora to display graphics
    anyway?

    TIA!

    With Eudora's internal viewer only, and only for certain image types.

    Quoting http://www.eudora.com/download/eudor...7.1/Readme.txt
    (or any "Readme.txt" in the same folder as Eudora.exe is installed):

    -------------------------------------
    NOTES CONCERNING EUDORA AND:
    * APPLE QUICKTIME
    * MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER
    -------------------------------------

    Eudora's standard message viewer supports basic HTML, such as text
    formatting and inline images (displaying pictures within the body of
    a message rather than in a separate window). Some of the supported
    image formats include .BMP, .JPG, and .PNG files. Installing Apple's
    QuickTime application adds support to the standard viewer for inline
    display of a wider range of image (picture) formats such as .GIF's.
    Installing Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), version 4.0 or above,
    adds an additional message viewer (hereinafter, the Microsoft viewer)
    to Eudora that can accurately display just about any HTML message you
    might receive.

    * If Eudora has two viewers, how will I tell it which one to use?

    Just check or uncheck the "Use Microsoft's viewer" checkbox in the
    Viewing Mail panel of the Options dialog, under the Tools menu in
    Eudora. The checkbox is checked by default if IE 4.0 or higher
    is on your system.

    [End quote]

    If you already have "Use Microsoft's viewer" enabled,
    then the problem is within Internet Explorer,
    as Katrina may have mentioned
    (Eudora here uses IE's HTML rendering engine
    to display inside its own message window,
    regardless of your own "default" web browser).

    If you have specified a different default web browser in Windows,
    try right-clicking within your message, then "Send to Browser"
    (your default browser now independently displays a copy of the message).

    John: Thank you for trying to help me!

    I found out what had been going wrong; to me it's weird, and I'd like
    to post what it has been, in an effort to help others who may run into
    this kind of thing:

    This comes from
    http://eudorabb.qualcomm.com/showthr...aphics+Display

    and the post which turned me on to my correction was from "jimojeda":

    "Hello,

    I was out looking for a solution because I noticed that Eudora stopped
    displaying images for me as well.

    I tried the solutions everyone suggested and even though taking off
    the check from "Use Microsoft's Viewer" under Tools/Options/Viewing
    Mail worked, I didn't like the way they'd get displayed.

    Then I found someone in a different forum mention that if "QuickTime"
    was disabled or the latest version was not installed, that Eudora
    would not display images.

    After I read that, I remembered that earlier yesterday, I was simply
    right clicking items on my active taskbar and "exiting" them. Among
    them was the blue "Q" which is for QuickTime. I had closed it down and
    after that was when all images stopped displaying.

    So I restarted the computer, I made sure that the blue Q was on my
    active taskbar on the lower right of my screen. I opened Eudora and
    "Presto!" it worked!

    Just to test this out, I then disabled QuickTime again, check my html
    messages and they wouldn't display graphics again.

    So check to make sure you have the latest version of QuickTime
    installed and that when your computer starts up, that it appears as a
    blue "Q" next to your system time on the bottom right hand side of
    your computer.

    Let me know if this fixed the issue.

    Sincerely,

    Jaime

    P.S. I'll post this in other places in this forum because I'm noticing
    that many people are having the same problem. I hope this is the fix
    for them too."

    So after reading this I tried to bring up my Quicktime, and sure
    enough here's what happened: This apparently just began a few days
    ago; when I tried to open Quicktime, the opening dialog box shows up
    and "loading" shows at the bottom. However, it just STAYS that way;
    never fully opens! I can still use the application; open video files
    etc...

    Then I remembered; for the past week, during boot-up, I've been
    getting an unusual dialog box that states something like
    "cannot,,,,,(don't remember the rest of the statement)", and provides
    a choice of either "work offline" or "connect". I'd been choosing
    "work offline" because I didn't know where the dialog box was coming
    from. This morning I chose "connect". When I called up Quicktime, it
    enabled quite nicely!

    When I went back into Eudora, graphics are now nicely displayed (with
    Microsoft Viewer enabled).

    I know this post is overlong, but I hope it may help others....

    Robert

    As Katrina's posting mentioned, images in your emails
    could be either attached (embedded) within the already-downloaded messages,
    or could be links to images remaining on web sites,
    which are fetched from those external sites
    only while the HTML is being interpreted and displayed.

    The former will display even if your computer (and/or Eudora) is "offline"
    (not connected to the outer world), but the latter will of course
    not display without an active connection.

    There was evidently a clue about this in the fact that "web links"
    were displaying some sort of "not available now" icon,
    as you had mentioned, but I didn't recognize the symptom,
    since I must evidently not be "offline" myself
    (too "wired" on caffeine, I guess

    I don't have Quick Time installed but all worked previously until this weekend and then all of a sudden no images.

    All I needed to do was de-select and then re-select Microsoft viewer under Viewing Mail under Tools -> Options.

    I restarted Eudora after this and all was well.

    Options are exactly the same as before I accessed. I guess they just needed refreshing.

    So that is based on one of the replies above.

    Thanks!!
