Outlook 2007 not rendering external/internet images

Ran into this problem when working on Alerts for blog sites. The alert renders images that are stored in the intranet, but not from internet sites.

Solution: As suspected, it was my Outlook 2007 settings. To fix, go to Tools -> Trust Center

UNCHECK the "Don't download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS Items"

Switching application pools, site not rendering correctly

This is an easy one, but might take some people sometime to figure out.

Problem: The admin run into an problem today when switching an application pool for a site. The site was not rendered correctly once switched to the new application pool and with the old one stopped. Upon taking a look, all the images were not showing.

Solution: Make sure the 'images', along with all other applications (virtural directories) are using the same app pool. In this case, the new app pool.
