Learn the steps to block or unblock external images in Enhanced WebMail.
Spam and other types of messages sometimes contain images that notify the sender that the email address which opened the message is valid. This may increase the amount of junk mail sent to that email address.
The HTML Privacy Protection setting on the Preferences page provides an option for blocking these external images, so they do not display. Instead, a Blocked Images message will display where the picture would have appeared. Any images received as attachments remain unaffected.
From the WebMail Inbox window, click the preferences link.
Result: The MAIL PREFERENCES window displays.
Under General Email Preferences, check the Block images from external sources box.
Click the Save button.
Click the Close button.
All steps complete.
