Always show images?

Need Answer

I'm a new subscriber, so I apologize if this is already answered somewhere else.


When a new message arrives, there is a button labeled "Show Images" with text, "External images have been blocked to protect you against potential spam!" Clicking the button displays the images for that message.


Is there a way to do something like "always show messages" for a specific address or domain? Always having to click for items that I receive regularly would be a bit of an annoyance.


Thank you!

For the record, the only way I've found to get around this so far is just to use the external email client ("eM Client for OX App Suite"). There does not appear to be a way to do this in the normal webmail client.

I appreciate the level of security that comes with blocking images by default. But not allowing users to whitelist specific senders or domains is an unnecessary nuisance. Even Microsoft managed to provide this in Outlook!

Especially since this function was once available (and always in the FAQ) ...It really is a brake to continue the subscription. Simple functions disappear and it's a shame.

It seems like a pretty basic function that should work. It gets annoying after a while.

14 months and still cannot whitelist images from trusted sources? I actually came here from Tutanota for a trial because they have the same issue. I can't imagine who can put up with this on a daily basis. Unbelievable.

Please add this! It's super inconvenient that you cannot whitelist email addresses for which you always want to show images!

Agreed, I'm a new customer and I've been thrilled with the service thus far except for this one issue. I think it would be nice if next to the "Show Images" button if there was another option to "Always show images from this sender" or something along those lines...

Any news on this? It can be really annoying.

Agreed. A simple white-listing function would be handy to add/remove safe senders.

Adding my vote to this. This and the weird 2FA implementation are my only two gripes with Mailbox.org.

Whitelisting would be awesome for added security and control even though, personally, I would even welcome an option to just show all images by default.

I'll add my support to this request, although interestingly, when I view my messages in my desktop and smart phone email client (Apple Mail) the images are shown.

I noticed the same thing - 3rd party email viewers show images from mailbox.org.

Of course they will - they're just showing the email in its raw form and will have their own settings for what to display. 3rd party email layout has nothing to do with Mailbox.org.
