Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2010 4:46 AM (in response to Gary Sumlak)Well, it has been a week since I posted and this thread has fallen way down the list, so if someone could just let me know if there is a way to display remote images manually, it would be VERY appreciated, and could let the issue die.

As far as I know, it's an all or nothing deal. The phone either displays all remote images, or displays no remote images. I don't think there is a way to manually display the images.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2010 5:04 AM (in response to Leann O.)Thanks, Leann.
I would have though it would fairly simple to add a "load images" button with the iOS4 update to Mail... such an obvious need..
At least you confirmed my impression, and that I wasn't missing something obvious..
Thanks for the incredibly quick response. It is greatly appreciated.Quad G5 2.5 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 1.5 TB HDD, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iLife '09, iWork '09, Final Cut Studio2, DROBO 6TB
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2010 5:08 AM (in response to Gary Sumlak)Leann is right I think although this feature would be useful (note Apple) as I have it in other email programs - the default is do not display, but there is a button to display images. Some emails allow you to view the full attachment in Safari but that kind of defeats the purpose.iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedSep 26, 2010 6:36 AM (in response to Gary Sumlak)In the userguide>settings>mail, i read "If Load Remote Images is off, you can load images manually when reading a message."
But i also cannot find the way to do it. I looked everywhere
Would have liked to simply click on a hidden image and asked if i wanted to
-load the image
-load the images for this mail
-load the image for this sender
-go to link

Currently Being ModeratedDec 7, 2010 12:07 PM (in response to Gary Sumlak)Sorry I know this is an old thread but thought I would let you know what I have found as I too have been trying to find this out and stumbled across some other threads.
Looks like this feature is missing and people have been on the case for a few years now! I found some old threads from early 2009, someone even got in contact with apple and the support team didn't know either. So in short even though the manual does indeed say that you can load remote images manually when you have the load remote images setting to off, it looks like we still can't. I am using iOS 4.2.1 and still can't find anywhere where we could load them manually.
So I found in another thread someone said to send in feedback forms to apple using this link:
I thought this might be a good idea?iPhone 4, iOS 4, Various Apple devises
Currently Being ModeratedDec 26, 2010 8:17 PM (in response to speachmusic)Just a quick one to say did anyone ever get to the bottom of this? I left the feedback/idea for Apple many times over the past year with still no avail. This matters more so now we have limited data allowances in the UK as I want to limit as much as I can (i.e. dont load any photos, then just the ones that interest me). Come on Apple!! Fix this please!!!iOS 4
