To know how to deactivate this tool, follow the below-mentioned steps.

To do so, simply launch the application, go to the Settings panel and toggle the virtual Block Images switch ON or OFF to activate or deactivate image blocking in the body of incoming email messages.
  • Remember that keeping this feature activated helps in preventing spam. Spammers generally use images in email as this helps them in easily knowing whether the receiver is reading their email or not. When you see such a Spam image, the spammer gets to know that you opened the email, which encourages him to send you more emails.
  • In order to activate the Image blocking feature back, simply go to the Security section under the Settings option and click the drop-down menu next to Show Images in Emails. Select Never by Default Once done, make sure to click on the Save button to save the changes.
