I prefer using my email at the mail.gamil.com site vs the email app, however I can't get it to show pictures. I touch the show pictures link and nothing happens. When I go tnto the app version the pictures show already without even having to click a setting. The email is from Gander Mountain and has several items with pictures.
I prefer not using the app because I like some of the features in the web version better. I'm guessing it's a mobile version of gmail that I'm logged into. I went to it using Safari.
