Default Re: BES Setting for viewing embedded images

This is a security measure, otherwise the sender could track if you read their messages or not.
When a Rich Text message is sent with an embedded image and received on a BlackBerry, you see a text box where the image should appear filled with "Picture (Device Independent Bitmap". Also at the bottom of the email message you have a message that there is an "Unsupported Attachment".

If you choose "Get Images", from the BlackBerry menu, text box that said "Picture (Device Independent Bitmap" changes to the same box filled with a red X.

Again, if you send the same exact email, but in HTML format, the image shows up perfectly in line in the text and you don't have to choose "Get Images".
