I am using Windows 10 and Windows Live Mail 2012 for accessing my hotmail-turned-msn-turned-live-turned-outlook mail account. Now I am getting notices that effective the end of June I can't access outlook mail using Windows Live Mail and I have to use the mail client in Windows 10 or use the web mail.
So I set up the Windows Mail app in Windows 10 and almost immediately had to close it as a security risk. By default, and maybe the only option, Windows Mail automatically downloads images in emails. That means that my email address has been confirmed by every spammer who sent an email with a linked image used to validate that the email was opened.
Windows Live Mail 2012 never opened an image automatically or automatically downloaded any content.
How can I turn this off in WIndows Mail?
