    There's no solution yet. It's a bug that affects many different phone models on different versions of android. We need google to solve it, so please go to code.google.com and click the star for android issue 2507.

    From what I understand it is a problem with the gmail app on the Eris and not 2.1. If that's the case there will be no fix until Google fixes and updates the app.

    No, this is a bug in the Gmail app affecting Android 2.0 and later.

    I'm a drifter.. here and there.

    Well it works just fine for me, running Aloyisous 4.1 ROM. But of course, root is a must.

    If you set up Gmail in the HTC mail app, pictures do show in your emails.

    I do receive pictures in the gmail app that contain attached pictures, just not embedded ones.

    Ditto that, to clarify. I can see attached images just fine, at the end of the email.

    I can't see pictures that are included using HTML, after clicking "Show Pictures". For instance, an ad that I just received from Fry's Electronics:

    I'm running Aloysius V5 and hitting the show pictures button absolutely shows the embedded pics in the gmail app.

    Anyone know what the developer of Alosiyius did differently? Does your Gmail app show a "labels" button or an "older" button when you're looking at an email?

    Ok, so it is using the newer version of Gmail.apk (from 2.1, not 1.5), which is the same thing we've got in the 2.1 leaks. So that's not the difference, but I wonder what the difference is.

    I don't know. I always thought our problem was related to the Webview not working (the internal browser that it uses to see, for instance, restaurant reviews in the Urbanspoon app).
