Gmail Does Not Display Images Using Internet Explorer

Bookmark and Share

Symptom:  When reading an email using Gmail in Internet Explorer, no images are displayed.  This happens even if the “Display images below” or “Always display images from <sender>” settings are used.

Problem:  Newer versions of Internet Explorer, by default, block HTTP content from being displayed on pages secured with SSL (HTTPS).

Solution:  Adjust the security settings for the Internet zone in Internet Explorer.

  1. In Internet Explorer, go to the “Tools” menu and select “Internet Options”.
  2. Click the “Security” tab.
  3. Select the “Internet” zone and click the “Custom level…” button.
  4. Scroll down to the “Miscellaneous” section and set “Display mixed content” to either “Prompt” or “Enable” depending on user preference.
