Should I block images from being displayed in the email?
Images consume a lot of system resources while loading. This will increase the time it takes to display the message in the email. When you block images, the images will not be retrieved from the server and will display the message faster.
Moreover, certain images can carry malicious code along with them and may get installed on your computer without your knowledge. This code can relay information about your email address, which may result in more spam in your mailbox. By preventing these images from loading until you are confident of the source, you may prevent spammers from sending you unsolicited email.
