Block images in your incoming Yahoo Mail emails

The choice is yours! You decide whether or not images are displayed in your incoming Yahoo Mail emails.

Changing your image display settings

  1. In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings menu icon Small gear icon | select Settings.
  2. Click Security.
  3. From the "Show images in emails" drop-down menu, select:
    • Never by Default.
      - This is your safest option.
    • Always, except in Spam folder.
  4. Click Save.

  Not displaying images fights spam: Image blocking prevents the confirmation "hits" that spammers receive whenever one of their images is viewed.
