    I had a problem like this a while ago. What was happening was my friend was attaching a 'link' to the picture, and not the actual picture itself.

    Your OE is working correctly (evidenced by the red x), but for some reason there's no picture there to show. Walk your friend through the steps on how to attach a picture.

    If you want to make absolutely sure it's not something on your end, PM me your email address and I'll shoot you a picture in an email.

    I think there's a problem with you@yahoo.com email accounts and transferring pictures. Maybe someone can jump in and help you find out how to get it to accept pictures through that account.
