I have been receiving messages that have links like this:

cid:X.MA1.1251316119@aol.com

The context of the messages suggest that these are pictures but they are not

displayed and when I click on the link it opens a new message in outlook as

if I had clicked on "Reply". they are all consistent with the above

referenced example as they all start with cid:X followed by an alphanumeric

ending in @aol.com.

Any help would be appreciated.

Are you or the sender using AOL? cid usually means picture. Are you scanning

your mail with an virus scanner? That could be causing issues, or its just

something goofy with AOL.

This particular email didn't come from an aol address however, it has been

forwarded so there is a possibility that it originated or somewhere along the

line was forwarded by someone with an AOL address.

I do use McAffee. do you have any suggestions on how to veiw these pictures.

This happens frequently. Many Thanks!

It sounds like the message was corrupted and the images lost. The CID

should link to an image included with the message.

CID: is an internal bookmark outlook uses for embedded pictures so the

behavior when you click the link is to be expected, when the image is

missing or the message corrupt.

Not just OL, but any mail client embedding attachments.
