'Why must I select VIEW THIS EMAIL WITH IMAGES to see images? I have FIOS.

there's an option in Settings that turns images on and off. go to gear icon in the right side menu, choose 'more settings' at the bottom of the pane that opens, go to 'Viewing Email' on the left menu, and change the preference (click the radio button) of 'Show images in messages' to 'Always, except in spam folder'. then it should always show you images, but beware spammers can track images and know if you open their email (some spam may make it to your inbox), so it's safer to keep it the way it is, but your call.
