But this self-restraint also means some emails — most probably your cherished newsletters — will not look like they were intended to. Without pictures, these messages will be hard to read and may even miss essential information. Fortunately, it's easy to make Outlook fetch all the images in a message after you have verified it comes from a trusted source.
Download Remote Images in an Email in Outlook
To download remote images in an email in Outlook:
- Click on the gray bar inserted just above the email's content that says Click here to download pictures. To help protect your privacy, Outlook prevented automatic download of some pictures in this message..
- Select Download Pictures from the menu.
This lets Outlook download the pictures in this email. The images are cached, so you don't have to manually download them again if you re-visit the message later. If you get a new message from the same sender, you have to go through the procedure described above again, though.
