Block or Unblock External Images in Classic WebMail
Last Updated: Thu, 20 Oct 2011 > Related Articles
This article provides steps on how to block or unblock external images in 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 External Images setting on the Privacy 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 Settings.
Result: The Message Settings window displays.
Result: The Privacy window displays.
Under External Images, choose whether to block unwanted images or to allow all images in HTML.
Note: If the first option is chosen, any blocked images will prompt the notification "Blocked." Images received as attachments are not affected by this option.
All step complete.
