Add default switch to show images in email
I would like to see a switch for the default action of the "show images" function.
In the preferences section, a switch could be added with 2 options:
- Always show images
- Ask (this would be the same as it is now).
With option 1, images in the email body would always be displayed.
Agreed, this is very frustrating. I don't want to load all images by default, but there are many senders I trust and have to click "load" over and over. This seems like a pretty basic function.
Please allow user to state 'always show images from this sender', like Gmail, to make a sender address whitelist for image-loading. Just keep a hashset of image-display-authorized sender addresses to check against for showing images.
Example: I receive the Economist newsletter, and every single time I receive the newsletter, I have to manually click 'allow image loading'. I would like to just whitelist this address to auto-load images (both in the web app and the mobile app) but currently this is not possible. This is annoying and easy to fix.
Thanks again for everything. ProtonMail is on its way to becoming a best-practice provider for anyone remotely security-conscious.
Do you realise the privacy implcations of always allowing images to load? Once an image loads, it lets the sender know that you've opened the email, gives them your IP and location, and lots of other data.

This is available also!!
Hush has this option. Although disabled images by default is a very good start as I almost never allow them.
"Some images are not displayed. Displaying these images could reveal your computer's IP address to the sender" <Display these images>
