Thanks for Your Help


Thanks to those people who were kind enough to provide me me feedback on whether you could see the images in my recent subscriber emails. I appreciate all your input and it was very helpful.

When I first noticed this problem, I immediately thought that there was something wrong wth my blog. Over a series of attempts, I changed settings, uninstalled and reinstalled software but nothing made any difference.

Your feedback shows that only (some) Apple devices were affected, I have concluded that the problem lies with the new security and privacy settings in Apple’s email software – both on iPhones and computer (MacOS Monterey and IOS 15). They block embedded images as a security feature. I actually loaded a different third-party mail program onto my phone and, lo and behold, the images appear perfectly.

I now know what the problem is, but I don’t think that I can fix it. I’m afraid that unless Apple changes their software, Apple users will need to click on the title of each email to open the web page so that you can see my posts properly. You may have some joy on your iPhone by going to Settings>Mail>Privacy Protection and change the setting for ‘Allow All Remote Content”. On an Apple computer, it may help to change the same setting under Mail>Preferences>Privacy.

Again, many thanks.

  1. Hi Bruce,
    I think you’re getting close to the cause of the problem – but not completely. I have the option of using the Privacy protection you mentioned, but even when it’s turned off, I still can only get your blog pictures by clicking on the title. But it’s no big deal to do so.

Yesterday, my Probus Club and I visited the Immigration Museum which is located in the grand old Customs House building on the bank of the Yarra River.

Our Winter’s Day Out in the Hills for Lunch

What better to do on a dismal wet winter’s day than to head to the hills for lunch. This weekend is the Queen’s birthday long holiday weekend. (I’m living in the past – it’s actually the King’s birthday long weekend, but since Queen Elizabeth was on the throne for virtually all my life, its hard […]
