I get the small icon showing clouds and a green colored hill where email pictures are supposed to automatically appear. This happens on some of the emails I receive from commercial vendors like Nespresso. Any suggestions on enabling the images to appear automatically?

Hello,

Email images that don't automatically load are usually a result of that specific email client needing permission to "always display" the images from that specific email contact. There should be two options on the top of the email (this may very depending on which client you use ie: Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail etc) one will say "show images" and the other option should be "always show images from this recipient" (if you trust that contact). This is for most email clients but not all. If your email client does not have this or you cant readily identify it, our support team will be more than happy to help with this. What time would be best to call you?


Kind Regards,

I'm using the Sonic website to access my email and there doesn't seem to have options to "always show images". Maybe I should switch to Outlook to enable the pictures? Thanks for your response.

Right next to (or possibly under) the button to "Display images," there should be one that says "Always show images from <sender>."

This should be in a yellow banner at the top of the message, just under the details (From, To, CC, Date).

I don't see the yellow banner or the details you mentioned using the Sonic email viewer. I can select always in the "Display remote inline images" on my settings but this doesn't work either. When I get the time I'll try using Outlook to see if it works for getting Sonic email.

Thanks for your suggestion, much appreciated!

Hmmm... are you using webmail.sonic.net or legacy-webmail.sonic.net?

In standard web mail, here's what I see at the top of any message that has embedded images:

Another possible cause could be if an adblocker is going a little too ham on the blocking. Nespresso and other various sellers out there might be using a domain that an overzealous adblocker might be blocking.

Are you using any kind of adblocker? If so, give it a try with the adblocker off and see if they show up.

If you need help checking that we'll just need to know which web browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc) you are using and we can show you where those are in your browser.

I believe I'm using webmail.sonic.net (going by what I see in the url box). My email browser looks just like the image posted but nothing I toggle makes the yellow colored banner appear. I turned of the ad blocker and that didn't change anything either. Thanks for your input, any other thoughts or suggestions?

A few thoughts...

1. Can you try another browser, or a different device?

2. Are the emails being sent directly to you, or is someone forwarding them to you?

3. Can you forward one of the messages to someone else to see if that person can see the images?

4. Are you using the equipment provided by Sonic?

5. Have you tried rebooting the network equipment? Has your computer been rebooted since you started noticing this?
