    No. It is a security measure imposed by Microsoft since the Windows Mobile days. Images do not automatically download to reduce the risk of the bad guys getting to your phone.

    It would be impossible to see them without downloading them.

    As Jim and Squatch have pointed out, it is by design and there is more than one reason the photos don't automatically show up. Another reason is cost (cost could mean money, bandwidth or just resources). I have 5 email accounts on my phone and it allows me to select what email attachments i want to download.
