outlook express 6.0 images blocked



I use Outlook Express for my mailtool and for the last 8+ months I've been
having problems. I have Netscape as my internet provider and my mail
initially goes to the Netscape mailtool. From there it gets downloaded to
Outlook Express.
The mail looks okay in Netscape, but after it gets to Outlook Express most
of the pictures have been replaced by white boxes with red X's (My mail is
set up to download images. Attachments come through okay).

I have worked with Netscape to try and determine if there were any problems
with their mailtool and it was determined that everything was okay.

I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2 and Windows 2000.
