    * THIS is not about blue boxes or missing pictures...

    I am wondering if anyone has found a "work around" to this button. I dont want to have to press the button every stinkin time i open an email. :mad: Is there an app, or setting, or magical spell that i can perform to make this option go away so that when I open an email it shows me... the email (as it was intended to be sent)?

    Hey Zeroink, the answer is no, you can't get around it. Google won't let you, although they claim that they will automatically show pictures from anyone to whom you've sent more than two emails.

    I also have questions for you because a bunch of us are having sort of the opposite problem: We click "show pictures" and it just shows us empty boxes with question marks (I see you're aware of that from your footnote). On your phone, it seems like the Gmail app is successfully showing the pictures after you click "show pictures."

    Do you have a regular Gmail address (something@gmail.com) or a Google Apps address (something@your-own-domain.com)?

    Did you set up your phone before or after January 13?

    Do you have a third-party browser installed on your phone, such as Dolphin Browser?

    You'll help a ton of people if you can answer these questions for me, as we're trying to determine the difference between people who can see embedded/inline images and those who can't. Thank you!
