Block email delivery/spy pixels
Could we please have a feature similar to this https://hey.com/spy-trackers/?

Doesn't the "This message contains third-party content [LOAD]" button protect one against this very thing?
Filtering these spy pixels feels like what ProtonMail was created to do: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56071437
Email tracking pixels are typically a .GIF or .PNG file that is as small as 1x1 pixels, which is inserted into the header, footer or body of an email.
They can be impossible to spot with the naked eye even if you know where to look. They can be used to identify the user's rough physical location based on IP address and in some cases making it possible to see the street the recipient is on. Spooky and invasive of privacy.
Can you please consider the ability to block all of these types of tracking pixels to protect our privacy?
