 How to Enable – Disable Pictures from Downloading Inside Emails Windows 8 Email Client

If you use the default Mail client for Windows 8 to access your email, you probably have noticed that photos attached to messages are downloaded and displayed automatically. Unfortunately, this may waste your Internet bandwidth. Also, privacy is compromised since the images you receive might not be appropriate to view at work. To be safe, you can disable this feature and force the application to display text only.
Microsoft is very schizophrenic about if pictures and images should load by default within email clients. If images are loaded, the data from the image download can be analyzed by email marketers to obtain some basic information about you. By downloading the image, the markets can assume that you viewed the message and can estimate your location based on your IP address. Using other sophisticated techniques, even your email address can be confirmed to their database.
